The camshaft sensor has nothing to do with the alternator light being on-Your problem here could be the computer controlled of the alternator's field generation circuit-

Dunno the cost of repairs it varies with location-Have the wiring checked from the alternator to the computer-if okay have the computer checked/tested-
