Hi there:
I looked the information up as you listed it and for a sedan and the yaw sensor is located under the center console assembly. Is mounted within a couple of brackets in the console. Click the link below to enlarge IMAGE.

The yaw rate sensor measures the relative vehicle motion about the vertical axis through its center of gravity. It is usually located inside the Sensor Cluster located in the middle of the vehicle somewhere , under the console .
The sensor cluster (also called the accelerometer) consists of the yaw rate sensor, roll rate sensor (if equipped with roll stability control), lateral accelerometer and longitudinal accelerometer. The lateral accelerometer measures the acceleration which corresponds to the force involved when the vehicle slides sideways. This acceleration has 2 forms. The first is the centrifugal acceleration which is generated when the vehicle travels around in a circle. The second is the acceleration due to gravity. On level ground there is no contribution from this acceleration. However, if the vehicle is parked sideways on a bank or incline, the sensor measures some lateral acceleration due to gravity even though the vehicle is not moving.

I have a 2007 they suburban taho and the stabill track light is on

The Stability System is part of the anti lock brakes ! The place to start is
Diagnostic Starting Point - Antilock Brake System
Begin the system diagnosis with Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle .The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
The identification of the control modules which command the system

The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit

The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
This Is going to be Greek to you probably ! This is where a up scale scan tool is needed , or a factory one ! Your going to need to have vehicle scanned for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes ! Is the ABS light on as well ?
A sample of DTC'S
DTC C0186 00: Lateral Accelerometer Circuit

DTC C0186 5A: Lateral Accelerometer Circuit Erratic
DTC C0196 00: Yaw Rate Circuit

DTC C0196 5A: Yaw Rate Circuit Erratic
DTC C0252 00: VSES Sensor Uncorrelated
The Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES) is activated by the electronic brake control module (EBCM) and calculates the desired yaw rate and comparing it to the actual yaw rate input. The desired yaw rate is calculated from measured steering wheel position, vehicle speed, and lateral acceleration. The difference between the desired yaw rate and actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes to large, the EBCM will attempt to correct the vehicles yaw motion by applying differential braking to the left or right front wheel.
This is a problem you should take to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop ! Or you can try to reset the system by disconnecting the battery cables an touching the cable ends together for 60 seconds ! But if there is a real fault in the system ( bad sensor ) The light will come back on ! Maybe not right away ! A couple of days or weeks etc....

Location of 2002 Toyota Highlander Yawrate Sensor?

I'm sure your mechanic read code for yaw rate malfunction.
yaw rate is a sensor on the base of the column and read the steering angle.any time you do alignment or replace steering parts the angle change and the sensor read +or- off zero. driving for some times computer will call for sensor problem.
First make sure the car drive straight,no suspension or steering problem, tire size and pressure is the same and find mechanic with advance scanner to program the sensor to new ZERO.
Don't replace the sensor before give hem the second chance. the new sensor need programming to.
Good Luck

My car is mercedec benz 2001 c240 avangarde have a problem ESP How can fixe my car

In your car Electronic Stability Program system included many different sensors (yaw-rate sensor, steering angel sensor, body acceleration sensor, some more) if ESP visit Workshop message appear on your instrument display It's very hard to say witch sensor could be the fault without right diagnose most common faults are either steering angel sensor or yaw-rate sensor might be some other sensors if you replace yaw-rate sensor it's need to be calibrate by diagnose computer, if replace steering angle sensor it's need to do right way otherwise when you tern steering wheel fully left or right it will brake at first time then you have to be replace another one so like to advise you to get right diagnose and repair buy Mercedes specialist if do some thing wrong it's be more cost to you if you get right place to do it only you have to pay once.

I went to the Honda dealership with my 2006 Honda Odyssey for the VSA light on. They told me its a YAW Sensor and they want $700.00 to fix it. Honda tells me ther eis no recall for this problem. Is there a...

I dont see any bulletins on the sensor having issues. the yaw sensor also referred to as roll rate sensor is located under the drivers seat. an option for you might be to replace sensor yourself and just have dealer perform the setup replace you will need to remove the drivers seat to gain access and be very careful not to drop new sensor. might get lucky and install and light goes off with no further action,but if not most dealers will charge an hour labor to program/setup
