Hi, I have the exact same issue (Alert! Air temperature sensor not detected), it came up just after this weekend, when I cleaned the inside of my pc.
Am I correct that you fixed this issue, by repairing the red cable? (the connector connects 4 small cables to the motherboard: white/blue/red/black
If that is the case I will investigate the cable for any damages.
Do you have any other tips? I would like to hear this issue is pretty frustrating, please post to my email address: email@example.com
Many thanks in advance!
SOLVED: Reading HERE, I pulled the cover, and discovered the twisted pair from the sensor tucked more than tightly between the covers for the main fan, and the heat sink; the red wire had been severed. Gently separating the two covers with my pocket knife, I removed the wires from their pinch, and soldered the red wire back together.
Now: I no longer get the freeze and warning upon boot, and although not silent by a long shot, the Dell is less that half the noise I had previous.
Thanks, happier Joe
PS: I can't help but wonder if this computer has been running without a sensor it's whole life.
(I sure can't picture those wires ending up in such a pinch on thier own) ;)
