    Search around, should be able to find the resistance values.
    Could be the clock spring.
    Horn work?
    Third brake light?
    There's also a relay buried behind the dash.

    If the horn doesn't work the clockspring would be my first guess. You might try using your foot to pull the brake and clutch pedal up while trying to set the cruise. Some times the switches get out of adjustment and the cruise thinks your foot is on the pedal. I probably have some troubleshooting info somewhere. I can't look now
