Surging help -UPDATED with fix!

New truck. Ran good up till a few days ago. It surged a few times, felt like the APPS was failing. Replaced with a Timbo. This morning it did it the worst.

Right off the bat, cold engine, driving down the road, it drops down like you let off the throttle, then comes back. Feels like 1 second increments or so. Did it for 10 miles. Cruse on or off. Floored it still does it. Apps was constant. I got pissed and pulled over, no codes on CTS. Shut engine off, went into gas station, came back, did it for 5 more miles. Got repissed, pulled off road, key on/off codes pulled nothing. Then it ran fine the rest of the way to work.

Think it might be the ignition key, or is it a VP?

^^^^^^^^^^^ This is why a fuel PRESSURE GAUGE is SO DARN IMPORTANT !!! Shoot, Dodge should have installed a GOOD liftpump and gauges when these trucks were built.
