Question: Electrical Problems

I am the original owner of a 2007 Ford Focus within the last 5 years I have put 175,000 miles on my car and recently within the last week my alternator quit so I replaced that, the battery and the belt. Now after one week the speedometer doesn't work, odometer doesn't read anything, blinkers don't work, radio and dome light doesn't work and headlights are working but not like normal. I hooked a computer up to it before finding out that it won't tell me how to fix it if my check engine light isn't on but the report said Generator Field Terminal Circuit Low. What is wrong?
