Wj 2002 grand 4.0l Cruise control buttons turn off/kills engine

i have another thread up related to this but seeing if this symptom alone has 100% fix. im having a rough idle problem and cruise control is related to it ..... if you hit pretty much any of the cruise control buttons it will make the engine stutter more or kill it and if you hold it down it turns off the engine.

what ya think?

i think its the clockspring i unplugged it and the idle and operation seems to be back to normal . i gas it and it comes back down to normal idle and stays there without surging and stuttering . oem or aftermarket clockspring is the next question

just got new clockspring today from dorman off ebay.installed... good and bad news. the cruise control buttons dont kill the engine anymore like they didnt when i had it disconnected but they also dont light up on the dash to use them . expect almost once but its like its nonresponsive . the idle is steady instead of surging which is good . but high around 1000 rpm. when you put it in gear it comes down to normal idle. driving at idle it still 1000 rpm. the battery was disconected so i dont know if the mil has to reprogram itself. ive driven about 10 miles . there is still one code which is the p0121 which could be a couple things. ive only tried to earse it once so i will try again. i hope not a short.
