Try this. It should reset the ECU. Disconnect the battery for about a half hour. It's worth a shot.

Make sure ALL of your connections are clean and tight at the battery and alternator. That none of the wires are nicked, cut, corroded, melted or broken. As far as the radio not turning off when you open the door, does the dome light come on when you open the drivers door? Will the radio turn off when the passenger door is opened?

Sounds like the new alternator is no good. If you got it at Autozone or someplace similar they are usually not very good. However even a good brand can be bad out of the box from time to time. Go have the alternator and battery tested at an Autozone for free.
