SAFE MODE PROBLEM/Engin BAD

Embarrassed owner of a 2005 6.0 GTO here! Has anyone experienced safe mode, engine light ON problems? It's my 2nd time returning the car to the dealer within 3 months of ownership to correct the same thing. Something about the sensors are bad - hmmm yet I still have to make my monthly payments for driving a Krap machine????? (squeezing a lemon right now....and it's very sour)!

Two sensors I know of cause this.

like EEZ GOAT said the pedal sensor, which BTW they have to replace the ENTIRE assembly when the replace that one.

Then the MAF sensor causes this error. We had one car that needed both. The engine was fine and the customer currently has 500hp coming out of it.

underdrive, cam, SLP long tube, Corsica Catback, Tune. Those are the things I know he did to it. I'm not sure what else he did.
