The cruise control cancels when it receives a brake on signal from the brake light switch, so that is the first thing to check is to see if the brake light switch has power, if not repair the circuit, if it does then check brake switch operation, if the switch works properly then you have a broken circuit after the switch and you will have to trace it out, if the switch doesn't work then replace it and recheck your lights, if your now work then your cruse control should cancel also.
