Hello and thank you for your question,

There are two acceleration sensors, one on the right side and one on the left side. Both are located under the wheel housing on the left and right side of the car. See the left front side location in the link below, the RH side is the same but on the RH side. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.

I have a code 5e30 code for the lateral acceleration sensor how can you check what side it mean?
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

Is this code coming up as P code?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no the it just 5e30 in the abs module for the lateral acceleration sensor. The tire light and traction light is on.
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

Im not finding any listing for this code with Mini. See the complete list of fault codes for the Mini. Are you sure the code is correct? Copy and paste the link to your browser to view all the Mini codes.

the code isn't a powertrain code its a abs code.
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

Yes I know that but the list I sent you is all codes for the Mini and its not on the list so that usually means its not a valid code.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I scanned all the modules and that the only code that comes up
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

I am finding the code 5D90 but I am not finding anything for the code 5E30

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'm trying to get the tire light and the traction light to go out
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

If I could find a valid code reference for you I would sure supply it but I am not finding any reference to this code.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
there is also a 5e5c code for run flat
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

I am finding no reference to this code as well.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
under mini cooper what would be the code number for the lateral acceleration sensor?
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

I sent a complete list of all their fault codes.

Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

If its not on the list then that usually means its not valid.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
ok I got a tire light on and a traction light on with 2 non vaild codes so were would I go from here?
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

Im not sure from here, I do not think they are related but with out a valid code I can only guess. If you would like, I can open the post back up and maybe some one else has something different to add. Your question started with wanting to know where the acceleration sensors where and I answered that.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
