Accelerometer location?

Does anyone know if the accelerometer is located in the Suspension Control Module? And, do you know if it's used for real-time magnetic suspension adjustment? I ask because I've had weird, intermittent suspension problems for quite a while. I thought it may have been a faulty M2W switch causing interference with the fuse block that also provides power to the SCM but that wasn't it. Decided to put the M2W back in this weekend and in the process I noticed that the SCM wasn't secured in it's bracket. It was very easy to slide back and forth. I snapped it back in correctly and, so far, it seems better. Only time will tell.

It's located under the center console right under the storage bin area. I had to have mind replaced because I damaged mine will modding for some LED lights.

Thanks, is that the one for the lateral G display? Did it affect anything besides that? Does anyone know if there is one in the SCM also?

Did some more digging and it looks like the sensor in the center console is the yaw sensor for the hill assist. I've looked at the I/O for the SCM in the Helms manual and I couldn't find an accelerometer input. I'm assuming there are motion-based sensors in the actual suspension control module itself. Anyone?
