safety mode

i cranked up the goat and got a song. the display said safty mode reduced performance. and i c the engine light on. what does this mean. any one have this problem b4. i have 7500 miles on her could it be the pedal sensor that i keep hearing about in the 05's? waiting on my salesman to call some people to see what needs to be done. (service is closed already and may be closed on monday to ) i will keep u peeps informed as it unfolds

You have the same problem I had.

I have a 2005 GTO - it's a problem with the pedal sensor. You will have to take it into get the sensor replaced.

I would get that display every now and again. I could disconnect the battery and clear it, and it would be fine. But, after a while, it would happen more and more often.

The good thing is that the part was here locally and my dealership replaced it in one day.

I had the safety mode / reduced performance thing happen to me twice, once around 300 miles, then the computer had to be replaced, and again at 650 miles, then the throttle body had to be replaced, got almost 2600 miles now, and she's been running great...now.

Yes - it has nothing to do with the transmission.

Also, I was able to make it stop by re-starting the car a couple times. this does NOT solve the problem. Make sure and take it to the dealer and get it fixed.
