Not sure, but your brake pedal might not be pushing the brake light switch back in. Next time it happens, stop somewhere safe, put the car in park and check the brake lights on the rear of the vehicle with nobody's foot on the brake pedal. If they're still on, try pulling the brake pedal up with your foot and check to see if the lights go off. If they are on then go off, you can usually adjust the brake switch closer to the pedal to put more pressure on it to get the lights to go off. If not, you might have to get a new switch. If that's not it, try wiggling the wires with it in park then take off again and see if it'll return to cruise control.

Cruise control wont engage after restarting vehicle

The fact that the light comes on is a good indication that the electronics are working, the most common problem is a vacumn leak. This can be a damaged or cracked vacumn line, a bad check valve, or the dump switch on the brake pedal

When driving, Speedodometer drops to zero.

I thought this year of Santa Fe had a 100k Warranty? If so, take it to the dealer and get it fixed. Even if it's not under warranty, take it and get it fixed! This is dangerous to use with the cruise control!! Do not use the Cruise Control until you get this fixed. It sounds like a bad speedomoter sensor, and that is confusing the Cruise Control. Either your speedometer is going to stop working altogether, or your going to RAM someone from behind going at a DANGEROUS rate of speed. Take it and get it fixed, and do not use the Cruise Control until it is fixed.

Cruise control shuts off up hill

if the cruise control light has come on then i would take it to a dealer and have them hook it up to the scan tool and see what exactly is going on. I think that pretty much is going to be your BEST bet. However you should check your brake fluid because if your brake fluid is too low then the cruice control will not work.
