A late reply; I'm sure you have found the problem by now-
It sounds as if the battery (old and new) are not receiving sufficient charge.
Check the drive belt tension and add a cheap digital multimeter to your 'tools.'  These can be had for well under $20 US and you can then check across the battery terminals to see if the charge voltage is between ~ 13-14.3 volts at an idle. In no case should it be lower than 13 volts with the engine running since the nominal battery voltage is 12.6 volts when fully charged.
You may have a separate regulator that is ill.

2005 ford freestar. sometimes the cruise works sometimes it doesn't


Could be any number of issues? Can you check for applicable trouble codes, relating to cruise control? Some of the national brand autostores will check codes for free.
With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing, or you can't find anything. Do you want to check voltage and ground circuit for your cruise control, meaning, check wire circuits using wiring diagrams?
Intermittent issues can be a pain to track.

2005 freestar, turn key on and fuel system won't pressurize. Spray a little starting fluid and van runs fine, system won't pressurize for initial start.


i would check the fuel filter if thats not it then it will most likely be the fuel pressure regulator make sure the vacuum line didnt fall off of it if that checks out then id say its your pump good luck i hope this helps
