Cruise control does not always work. On the few occasions that it does, disengage works when I touch the brake. But resume does not.

Check the adjustment of the cruise control switch on the brake pedal arm. As the car ages, the brake pedal return spring gets weak and the switch isn't "made".

    The cruise control will set, but it will quit shortly after setting it without touching the brake. I have been told it might be a vacuum hose. Help please?

    Cruise control only works on certain occassions. When it does, it will not dissengage until I hit the brake pedal sevaral times. A little dangerous.
