Despite colour did you try fitting it to see if it worked?

Have you checked brake light bulbs as the flashing dash lights may be related to blown bulb.

Is your Galaxy a manual or an automatic?

I'd consider checking for wiring loom damage/ shorted wiring where the loom passes from the vehicle body into the tailgate.

Would that effect brake lights as wiring for them is behind the quarter trim?
