on my 96, i had a similar problem - sometimes it would work great and sometimes not for one minute in a row. Believe it or not, after i had to repair my UVC harnesses and gasket, the problem totally went away. I suspect that the short in the UVC harness was tripping the check engine light (cruise didnt work with CEL on), but only so briefly that I never saw the light. It was not until short got so bad that it was always on that I found the problem. It may seem like a stretch, but it may be worth checking out.

could be a bad brake pedal switch or a bad clutch pedal switch if you have a manual.
