The cruise control system could fail due to a malfunctioning brakelight switch (staying on) or a vehicle speed sensor (VSS) problem (intermittent or failed). Check that the brakelights aren't stuck on, that's the easiest thing to check. If the VSS is faulty, I'd think it'd set a diagnostic code and turn on the check engine light, but you haven't mentioned the check engine light.
