Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience.

From your description sounds like the cruise control light comes and goes intermittently and the cruise doesn't work. Most commonly the brake light switch is at fault. If you have a code reader see if any codes are set for the cruise/brake switch. Let me know if there are any codes set.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions let me know. You can reply back to me through this thread at any time.
