try unplugging the alternator and see if your dash lights go out, if they do then your alt is faulty and just a coincidence it happened when you were doing your eng mounts.
They use the alternator light output as a "check light" for the rest of your lights.
Basically it can either be a faulty alternator or you've pinched the light wire that goes to the alt and shorted it to earth, that would cause the lights to stay on and also burn out your exciter diodes in your alt.
