Hi and thanks for your question. The cruise control is set with the engine speed and transmission gear selection. Check the fuse to the cruise control to see if it is blown. There could be two things going on.
The cruise control switch could be having a crossed wire or short inside it. The other problem is the transmission overdrive solenoid could be getting hot and causing the clutch to slip in and out of overdrive.
I recommend having a certified professional, like one from YourMechanic, help you diagnose your cruise control issue for an accurate repair.
