Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that the BCM could be the issue but not that likely.

With electronic throttle control there aren't any other components to the system such as a cruise servo and wiring. If you've replaced the cruise switch then either it's signal isn't being seen due to a wiring issue or the ECM is disabling cruise due to another issue. There are many things that will prevent cruise from working such as a cam or crank sensor code, transmission issues, accelerator pedal position or throttle body/TPS issues.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to see if there are any fault codes setting. Odds are there is one or more codes set that is preventing cruise from working and it will work after the problem is repaired. If no codes are set then data will need to be looked at to see if the cruise switch signal is being seen.
