Question about 1991 Mercury Capri
I put in a new battery to my 1991 Mercury Capri, I connected the battery and the headlights simultaneously went up and down, the car would not start, the lights came on, but the headlights would not stop opening and closing.
Your battery was installed backwards. The movement of the lights is a type of warning. Chances are you fried a fuse also.

I would remove the battery and give it a good charge. New batterys require a low amp over night charge. A cars altenator isn't designed to charge a battery it's made to maintain the battery to it's fullest ability. The headlights opening and closing would indicate to me a low voltage, causing the relays for the headlights not to fully shut or open. Let me know if this solves your issue, if not we can trouble shoot farther. Thank you for using fixya.com
