why does the cruise control shut its self off after its set for a few seconds
Could be the contacts on the switch are corroded. Since it is working I would say the fuse is OK.
Check your brake light switch. Might be faulty or a bad connection there. Since the cruise cancells when you hit the brakes I'd look there first. HTH. -Jim
