SOURCE: accelerator pedal sensor
there is no pedal sensor... there is a throttle position sensor located on the throttle body (near the MAF). Replacing it is simple and self explanatory once you locate it.

Testimonial: "I did that and when the symptoms reoccurred the repair shop said it needed the accelerator pedal sensor, which we found at a Kia dealership. So I'm confused."

Throttle position (TP) sensor C/accelerator pedal
position (APP) sensor ? - range/performance problem
Possible Causes: Accelerator cable adjustment, TP/APP sensor
Throttle position (TP) switch C/accelerator pedal position
(APP) switch ? - range/performance problem
Accelerator cable adjustment, TP/APP switch
This might only be an adjustment issue--make sure the throttle cable isn't so tight that the throttle cannot fully close.
If the cable is OK, it is probably the accelerator position sensor under the pedal.
There are procedures for testing the unit that I will paste below if you care to try them.
If you just want a shop to fix it, the part is about $50 and labor should only be 30 minutes.
Operation The sensor is made up of the two individual sensors within a single housing. Each sensor has a unique functionality to determine pedal position. The APP system along with the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is used to calculate and control the amount of acceleration and deceleration through fuel injector control.
