Look under the truck near the transfer case directly below the driver seat and you will find a 40-pin connector. It doesn't like water and has a habit of shorting all sorts of things together that relate to the rear half of the truck. Use a 10mm socket or wrench to open up the connector and you may find water/dirt/corrosion inside. Clean and dry with electrical contact cleaner and reassemble. If that doesnt work you need to replace the flex-fuel sensor.

Did you see this post if you haven't fixed it already?
p0176

A cheaper fix is to get one of those dspelectronics.biz modules for $100.
