here are two switches that are the usual causes of the cruise kicking
out. they are both under the dash. One is the switch for the brake
lamps (stop light switch). the other is for the clutch if you have a
if you follow the brake pedal up under the dash you'll find two switches at the top of the pedal. (it may be one switch but I think its two). the top one would be for the cruise control. if the switch is loose it will cause the cruise control to think you're stepping on the brake and that will disengage the cruise control
same with the clutch pedal if you have a manual transmission; if the switch is loose it will indicate you are pushing the clutch pedal in and cause the cruise to kick out
other than that you'll have to check all of the connectors. If it does engage then the fuses and actuators should be good and it would be a loose connector or switch that's kicking it out
also, i assume your speedometer works; if its not then that's your problem as the cruise won't engage under 30 mph

There isn't one. This car has a "brake and throttle by wire" system and the brake light switch is inside of that. You have a bad brake position sensor. Figure $240 or so at a dealer.

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.
