p0340 code...where is the cam sensor located?

power have been connect back still do not work door locks

yesterday 3/20/2017 my dash lights for battery and brake came on and stayed on. Starting off from a stop position noticed the car wanted to hesitate. Going down the road it would not shift into high gear. All of these symptoms started only yesterday when the brake and battery came on. Would the alternator being bad cause all these problems??
