It is most likely the cruise control amp that is located under the drivers side under dash panel.

Mine works after the car warms up awhile. Has been that way for the last 8 years I've owned it.

firstly remove the intake crossover tube and look at the cruise control motor that is behind the injection pump, The small plastic linkage arm that moves the injection pump breaks and your cruise control never works.
