I turn the key in my 2001 Ford Focus and all I get is one click, and all of the dashboard lights go dim. Found battery to be fine, some other problem. Any suggestions?

only two things left to do
1.- Clean and tighten battery ports (+ , -)
2.- ask for someone to help you, while you are trying to start it someone else give a few hits to starter, if second step helps to start it then it is the starter, hope this helps good luck!

2001 focus won't start. Replaced battery. Turn key and won't clicking sounds no sound at all in fact

dead battery? do lights work? 12 volts at battery terminals? If yes, clean terminals. If lights work, may need starter.

Some times my starter won't even make a clicking sound when I try and turn it over. What I've been doing is banging on the starter with a hammer and upon trying it again the starter engages and starts the...

The starter is no good. The indicator of that is the inconsistent turning over you are describing. I would replace and you should be all set. I had same issue with my old 1996 Taurus.

Hope this helps.

if the battery is ok there could be one of two problems have you tried the spare key? it may be a problem with the immobiliser look at the red light near the time clock it should go out when atempting to start. second try tow starting or bump starting you may have a faulty starter motor do not try this to often or you could damage the cat. do you get any noises when trying to start such as a clicking ? this would indercate faulty solinode on starter hope this helps
