Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

From what you have described here this sounds like the common fault with the cruise control on/off switch itself if this is the switch you have to hold down.This switch fails internally as well as in some cases the cruise/set switch needing replaced.When these or any of these act up this causes the fault you see here.I suspect at least the on/off switch needs replaced and some come as a complete assembly with the on/off and set/resume buttons.

You will want to have this tested further to verify this is the cause here and from there replaced to correct this fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
