Issue with Cam Sensor Lights on

I just bought a 2006 GT and the cam sensor light was on. Both were replaced but check engine still on. I read a few places this is related to the alternator...it was defective in these cars and the only way to solve the issue is to buy a new Motorcraft alternator. Is this true? Anyone else have this issue and if so, how did you solve it? Did it fix it permanently or temporarily? I know I need to fix it before inspection, but that is not for awhile. The car runs great right now. It has 91,000 miles on it. Any thoughts? Advice?

I would say the vast majority were alternator related. Not that there haven't been cam phaser issues, but IMO the starting point would be to check the alternator. Autozone checks them free. Check the battery while you're at it.

I just went through this last week. Sure enough it was the alternator @ 52k miles. Ford replaced it, CEL gone.
