4th - I tested it again (KOEO) and again and again to make sure = NO CODES
5th - I tested KOER and again = NO CODES
I ran each test several times and nothing...

But in the Continuous testing codes P0230 and P0232 still appeared.

What is CONTINUOUS MEMORY test?

I cleared the truck's computer memory with my code reader.
I have driven a few miles and no problems. I read that it takes about ten miles for the computer to recalibrate itself.
Has anyone gone through this?

I haven't but your truck continually will cycle through tests. The usual test time means you need to drive the vehicle for about 15 minutes at at least 45 miles an hour. Then run your code reader again.

Okay... I was out driving around and my truck stalls. I reset the Inertia Switch and it fired right up. Is it common for the INERTIA SWITCH to go bad.
I have replaced the fuel pump and relay.
what else can be causing the inertia switch to "trip"?

They do go bad, and they are a smart and pain in the ass thing to have in a truck. Hitting a bump to hard can cause them to go off.

Mine tripped one day out of no where and it took me some time to figure out that was the problem. After I figured it out and reset it I had no problems. I suspect a speed bump was to blame. Funny tho how it happened about a week after I changed the fuel filter. Must have aggravated it when i disconnected it or something

My 3.0 Liter Flex fuel got me to work today, but tonight it didn't start right away....so I depressed the accelerator, at an idle it was fine. Depressing the gas pedal causes sputtering, missing and dies. I tried turning on the heater full blast thinking it might be a gas bubble, but no luck. I tried removing the gas cap briefly and reinstalling, again. I limped it to a parking stall and will try starting again tomorrow after a bus ride.

The IFS switch is located on the toe board to the left of the right-hand kick panel.

1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
2. Access the IFS switch on the RH toe board and disconnect
the electrical connector.
3. Remove the bolts and remove the IFS switch.
INSTALLATION
1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

I am going to cry
i have had this problem. I after replacing the coil pack, the fuel pump, the crankshaft position sensor and some other things. I discovered i had a badly wired fuel pump cut off switch that, upon first inspection looked fine, but after another year or so of random cut outs on the highway, had heated up enough to be a problem. I removed it. see photos
