Cruise control is haunted...

I'm hopeful that others have seen this before and I'm not just going crazy...

I'm having trouble with the cruise control on my '02 F-350. It doesn't want to engage. I have to hit the button a few times to get it to turn on but that's not the scary part. Once it is on it doesn't want to disengage. It will go off when you hit the brakes but as soon as you come off of the brake it wants to re-engage and take you back to your preset speed.

Imagine this, you are cruising I-45 at 65mph when you come up on traffic. You brake down to traffic speed of 40mph and when you are 2 car lengths behind another vehicle you come off of the brake and the truck decides to turn the cruise back on and accelerate back up to 65.

Yeah, that was fun. Fortunately it disengaged when I hit the brake again and I was able to use the off button to shut it down.

I checked for codes and didn't find anything. Anybody have any ideas?

Mine does the same thing, with the exception that once I hit the brakes, it completely goes off. ie does not re-engage like your situation.

That is kinda scary though. Maybe someone has a solution.
