I have seen this problem arise on three different vehicles in four months, so I thought it would be worth a mention.

Symptom: Running down the highway at speed, go over a rough pavement patch, and the vibration seems to kick the cruise control off. Cruise will not reset immediately, and repeated occasional pushing of the button might get it to reset, but might not. Key off, engine off cycle seems to allow Cruise to be started again.

Cause: Brake Light switch becomes "gummy" and sticky, and the road vibration will jostle the switch just enough to put the switch partly into a depressed position, even though it isn't enough to turn on the brake lights.

Solution: $12 Brake Light Switch, snaps into place on the shaft of the brake pedal.
