Thank You for wrinting into AskPatty. To address your question, typically yaw rate sensors are located underneath the center console, under the storage compartment near the VSC (vehicle speed control) switch. There is a procedure called a zero point calibration that is required to be performed in conjunction with replacing the YAW sensor. This procedure is posted in a Toyota Tundra forum that mirrors that of your model. http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forums/1gen-sequoia/198800-2001-zero-point-calibration-yaw-vsc/

After speaking with my experts, I have gathered the following information:
The Yaw Rate Sensor is located under the drivers seat area. They are always going to be mounted on the floor board, the vehicle's center of gravity, as that is the most level area of the vehicle. After the installation, which is not very labor intensive however you must perform a reset/recalibration procedure for the vehicle to recognize and record the new guidelines. Hope this helps!

Hi, I found a picture illustration to help you find the yaw rate sensor. Location reference: Y. See link below. I would also see the Toyota Tundra forum referenced to decide on the difficulty level for replacement.
