Hi. The temp sensor is in the battery. This may mean that the battery is defect and somewhat due for replacement. Battery found hot to touch normally indicates a defect battery. The sensor helps in keeping the battery charging at an acceptable temp. Unfortunately, this tend to lean wholly on hardware (the battery's electronic make-up) than software.
