F150 CHARGING SYSTEM SENSOR

2005 Ford F-150

Electrical problem
2005 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 34760 miles

Charging System check message and batt lamp lit. Alarm comes on with alert soon after leaving home. Condition has existed for 2 months with no issues with battery starting even after a 10 day vacation. Where is the charging sensor located and could it simply be a bad sensor? Noticed alarm often goes off first time I press the brakes coming to a stop. How do you display engine codes and do you need a special tool?
