cruise control issues

The cruise control on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee works at times and not others. Sometimes you can press the button to engage the cruise control and the "cruise" light will come on for a second and then go back off, thus not allowing you set the speed. At other times the light may not come on at all, and then at others time it may work as it is supposed to. There seems to be no pattern, although the times it actually works seems to be less frequent. I took it to my local jeep dealer who "fixed" it by repairing a "poor connection from brake control function module" but the next day the cruise was not working once again. Due to many issues that I will not go into here, I don't have much confidence in their work and would rather not go back to them. I have been told that it could possibly be a bad brake sensor. Has anyone had any experience with this type of problem? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Sounds like its probably a leak in a vaccum hose, since I believe that is how the cruise control is operated. Im not totally sure on those.

I've been having the same problem with mine working intermittently. I'm going to have it looked at when I get it inspected in a few months. It worked all summer, but now that the weather is getting colder it's starting to do it again.

I'll be keeping tabs on this post to see how it is fixed.
