You have a faulty alternator, You need to get it checked or you will damage the new battery due to excess current drain.
It could be repairable or you may need a replacement alternator.

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!

Battery light is on

the Alternator (this keeps the battery charged) is not charging the battery, the lights dim due to the battery voltage dropping low, go to any Kragen or Autozone and have the battery and the Alternator/generator tested, it is free.
