VW Routan windows go down and lights flash when car is off

My 2010 VW Routan acts funny when I get close to it with the key, the windows go down the lights flash.
Now the battery died I took it to autozon and they said it might be your alternator. Anyone know how to remove the alternator? Any good videos about that? I searched everywhere and there was nothing.

Try looking for a video of a Dodge Caravan minivan of the same year as I beleve the VW is just a rebadge of the Dodge van

You did not say what engine is in the van but Here is part of a 2 part video

Routan/ Dodge Grand Caravan. Sound like a malfunctioning key remote, if your not pressing any buttons ant this is happening anyway. If you have more then one remote leave the other one in you house far away and get close to the van, if it doesn’t happen then most likely bad remote, if it does happen with the other remote you may have an immobilizer issue in witch I recommend a vw dealer handle that.
