This is air bag code 23, it refers to the safing sensor and/or diagnostic monitor. electrical diagnosis will be required for the circuit providing voltage to the monitor and the sensor to verify the point of failure, vehicle may require a sensor or you may have a corroded wire to or from the the sensor or monitor, I suggest getting the test proceedure and doing the test or have a qualified technician perform the test as air bags can be dangerous(& costly) when improper proceedures are used!
It means that there is a problem with your air bag. It should be blinking a code. Count the blinks. In otherwords it should blink twice, pause and then blink 7 more times indicating a code 27 which would be a burned out bulb on PAD. Count blink code and the google your truck year and air bag code and then the code and see what the forums are saying about it and what to check.
The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.
The air bag code 44 indicates that the air bag computer is not receiving a signal from the right front air bag sensor. This could be caused from defective wiring (loose wire or grounded through chafing) or the sensor being defective.
Every blink is a number. The code is composed of two numbers. Read the code and check what is wrong on error table code. By example at http://autorepair.about.com/library/images/bl797lib.htm, or you can google for the codes of the SRS. After you know what is wrong it gonna be easy to fix it (I didnt said cheap).
The flashing light should be giving you a code that will help determine the fault. It will be in morse code like 3 flashes then a short pause and 2 flashes.
However with your second concern that cruise control does not work I would have to say you most likely have a bad clock spring. This is a unit that mounts behind the steering wheel to make electrical contact with cruise switches and air bag.
