Question about 2007 Saturn ION-2 Quad Coupe
I had that problem, turned out it was a sensor in the acceleration pedal and needed to be replaced
Go to a local auto zone they will plug code reader in and tell you what it means for free if tps sensor was replaced removing positivebattery for 10 minutes this will reset code if problem is fixed if not let us know

Tips for a great answer:
Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF
Ignore the accelerator pedal input
Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
Did you have it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble code's related to the reduced engine power ?
All so has APP sensor gas pedal !
Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor
The accelerator pedal contains 2 individual accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors within the assembly. The APP sensors 1 and 2 are potentiometer type sensors each with 3 circuits:
A 5-volt reference circuit
A low reference circuit
A signal circuit
The APP sensors are used to determine the pedal angle. The engine control module (ECM) provides each APP sensor a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit. The APP sensors provide the ECM with signal voltage proportional to the pedal movement. The APP sensor 1 signal voltage at rest position is less than 1 volt and increases to more than 4 volts as the pedal is actuated. The APP sensor 2 signal voltage at rest position is less than 0.6 volt and increases to more than 2 volts as the pedal is actuated.
Your best bet is take your vehicle to the dealer !
