Default P2122 code. Anyone have information?

Hey guys! Exactly what the title says.. I just completed a head gasket install on my car (2005 9-3 Linear), and I have a CEL since it was completed, I've also noticed I'm stuck in limp mode (powerless in 1st and 2nd, 3rd is tolerable but still not right). I had it scanned by my buddy with an OBDII reader, and we tried wiping it to no avail... I've also tried calling around different places but I'm only being told "bring it in for diagnostics," and got information for the pins from the accelerator pedal position sensor to the ECU. I've also tried searching through the forums, and I've found a lot of information for the code P2138, but I only have P2122...

Just looking for more information regarding the P2122 trouble code before having to resort to taking the car into a shop. Money is tight, and so is time during this portion of the year.

Thanks for any help in advance!

EDIT:

I should also mention that I've reset the ECU, tried the "re-calibration" method of holding both the clutch and accelerator in while starting the car, cleaned the MAF, cleaned the throttle body, cleaned the plug that connects into the throttle body (I'm assuming the throttle plate sensor?), as well as removed the accelerator pedal to ensure that was clean as well.

I looked up the P0 Code and it came back on my software "SAAB WIS" and i got Pedal Position Sensor Circuit 1. Open circuit/ Short to ground

Solved my issue, it was a bent pin on the ECU. straightened it out and the car is back to normal. Also, thanks for your input cc93!
