Default Is there any easy/safe way to do this

I was going to do some work on a friends Impala and figured it would be worth it to try and scare him well in the process. Is there any harmless way to get a Series 2 to throw a SES light? I just want to freak him out and make him think I screwed something up and get him really worried then fix it after I freak him out a bit.

Hopefully this is in the right spot, I figured since this contains no info that will help fix a car that it should go in here.

Even the IAT sensor should throw a code. Or the TPS. TPS would be fun, as it'll screw up his shift points, too.

yeah, maf, tps, iat, o2, any of those will throw a code, as far as actual drivability goes, like how well the car will function..

Minor:
IAT
o2

Minimal:
TPS

Major:
MAF

And if you undo ALL of em, if it will run, LMAO, you'll scare him out of his mind, it'll run like utter crap.
