My cruise control light is stuck on, I don't believe it's on because my car is driving the same, but just concerning any suggestions to get it off. Wondering if it just went out and it's acting funny, or worse it's stuck on

Get down and look at parking brake assembly, If you see an electrical connector, unplug it, see if that helps? If it doesn't help or causes other issues just plug it back in.
Of course that isn't the proper fix. If something wrong with parking brake assembly, get it checked out.
Well usually when the third brake light works and the others don't, the problem is in the turn signal switch. The center brake light is separate from the other two as far as circuits go. The thing that puzzles me is the cruise. It could be something else, because the only way a faulty brake light switch would kill the cruise control is if the switch was stuck on. I think I would check the circuits in and out of the turn signal switch.
I am unable to find a P2009 code. The closest I have come across is a P2109 which is:
THROTTLE/PEDAL POSITION SENSOR "A" MINIMUM STOP PERFORMANCE
Whichwill usually be accompanied by:
Poor driving performance.
Also the "Cruise" light will always flash when the Check Engine light is on with these later models, but it does not mean there is a concern with the Cruise control. The diagnostic checks for these cars require the SDS: Subaru Diagnostics System.(A laptop computer with Subaru specific diagnostic software). These concerns are unfortunately not easy to diagnose w/out Subaru dealership resources. I hope this info helps.
jnjkingbird, It sounds like this problem is the clock spring as I don't believe that the horn and the cruise control would share a fuse. However, they do share a circuit in the clock-spring. You can check for power at each unit (horn and the cruise control) which would confirm this. Check each fuse as well. Good luck with this.
You're not gonna believe this but if the center brake light is out on a 2000 ML320 the cruise control will not work. I went over the owners manual with a fine tooth comb and not once did it mention the center brake light in conjuction with a malfunctioning cruise control. The book did state however to bring the car into an authorized Mercedes Benz dealer.
really tough to do on the net but first we need to know about any codes...
Hold speed control OFF button, and turn ignition switch to RUN position. CRUISE indicator should flash once to indicate successful entry into self-diagnostic mode. If CRUISE indicator does not flash, start procedure over. If CRUISE indicator still does not flash, repair system by symptom there might be some switch concern
If CRUISE CONTROL indicator flashes once followed by 5 additional flashes, replace speed control servo/actuator.
Release speed control OFF button. Within 5 seconds in entering self-diagnostics, press speed control ON button. Press remaining speed control buttons in the following sequence; ON, RES, COAST and SET/ACCEL.
As each button is pressed, CRUISE indicator will flash.
Wait until indicator light goes out, then press next button. After sequence has been completed, indicator light will flash to indicate test passed or failed. With the codes we can then better diagnose your concern
Immediately after static test has passed, actuator performs a dynamic test by automatically operating throttle .04-.40" (1-10 mm). Observe throttle movement to witness any sticking in cable or linkage. Ensure throttle returns properly. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. If self-diagnostics do not pinpoint fault there is more we can do but tough over the net
the lights you have on are probably the brake lights. you need to check the brake light switch. it is probably stuck in the on position and that would cause the cruise to not function properly because the cruise automatically shuts off when you press the brake pedal. hope this helps!
It is safe to drive your car. What happened was you have a Check engine light on indicating a problem with the emission diagnostic system. This also makes your cruise not work, and the light to blink. Take your car to your dealer at your convienence and have them diagnose it.
