There could be several reason for this. Check the fuse for the cruise control. If you have an ABS Brake Light on (or any ABS problem codes set), a failed wheel speed sensor could cause cruise control to not work properly, since cruise control uses wheel speed sensor data.

To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I would recommend having a cruise control inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
