I'd be checking fuses and realys. Who know's ur faulty relay could do something like that as well. If not then have your cuise control servo checked and replaced if necessary. check for loose connection or corroded connection. also make sure your switch is not half way in between on and off itself. good luck!

My cruise control will keep kicking out everytime I set it sometimes it will go for awhile and other times it will kick out every 2 sec's does it alot when it rains it seems.

check connections at cruise head in engine compartment, also check for vaccum leaks on engine, if everything looks good and there are no vaccum leaks then you may have bad cruise head or bad switchs or the wiring to switchs. good luck.

Cruise control

this is happening because once you shut it off you are sending an electronic signal to transmission and it resets itself once car starts back up as if something inside the ecm has been reprogrammed and erased alll over again. the ecm is your brain which controls your car. get a diagnostic scan ran on it ok?

Have you recently had any brake work done? I had a 05' freestyle that did the same thing.. when you tap the brake the cruise kicks off right? so if your brake pedal is sticking or not returning fully to the up position, the cruise will immediately kick off like you applied the brake. Check to see if your brake lights are staying on when you release the brake. Let me know what happens, please and good luck.
