Question about 1992 Mercury Topaz
The lights most definately are on because either you disconnected the battery to replace the starter like you were supposed to, or you didn't and you may have briefly shorted out the battery which is fine. The lights go on because the ecu was reset. The lights should last no longer than an hour or so, if they last longer than a day or 2 i would disconnect the battery for 30 seconds and reconnect it ot reset it again. As for the starter your'e fine, the wiring is fairly simple and if you got it wrong you'd know it.

Double check your battery terminals and cables...make sure they are clean, corrosion-free and snug. If they're dirty or have a layer of corrosion, even a new battery will make your starter click (due to poor voltage to the starter). Get yourself a battery terminal cleaning brush and clean them real good and connect snugly.
