Can dead mice being incinerated in the engine cause the check engine light to go on with the cruise control blinker? The car is running fine. Is it safe to drive?

Hello, I am Randallby default, the cruise will blink or be disabled whenever the check engine light comes on, this is for safetyso,, its not a cruise problem but another computer or sensor problem the computer detectedSo,, no way for me to say the cause of the light. One of too many codes could have setMay be very simple glitch computer detectedthe only way to know for sure is to drop by an Autozone, advance etc parts store,. they will do a free code scan. tell you the code #, what it means and possible suggest of what is needed to fixI cant help as the code is neededSince running ok, not missing, bucking etcvery possible its a minor fix, could even be a loose gas cap as expampleSo,, step one is to get the code, they can tell you if severe or not. I doubt it since drives ok, runs okBut ignor the cruise as that normal. the computer disables it for safetyIf you want to try removing the battery terminsal, hold the termianl ends together for 90 seconds, you may? clear the codes, then drive to rest idle and the code may not come back, No gurantee on this, only DIY try if you would like. My suggestion is to get code scan before you attempt to clear the code so you know at least what set the codetracer41077.5329584491
I am sorry you expected more of an answer. I am here to help but.. its impossible for any tech to guess what has happened. the code set is the clue. Any shop or tech MUST have the code set inorder to help to next step. With code? I can look it up, and then send more dteailed answer as to what happened
Till then its a guess, With over 150 possible codes, I cant guess
Codes are scanned for free at parts stores,. If you egt the code? I am here to help. I dont like to leave my custyomers hanging with their question. i am only saying the parts stores willt ell you the code and what it means
Not trying to dodge the question. only making suggestion as it will not cost anyhting to get this info.code
Hope this makes sense
