Make sure brake lights are working. When it does not work, does the cruise indicator light come on when you try to turn CC on?

I have not seen an indicator light, where is it located?

It may or may not have one.. If it does have one it will either be a symbol of a very small speedometer with a small arrow pointing to it and GREEN in color OR it may simply read CRUISE in GREEN color, will be a light in the instrument panel. Shine a flashlight onto the gauges and see if you notice the symbol/word anywhere.

Will look tomorrow. What if I find the symbol but it don't come on or does come on but cruise still don't work?

Than I can know which diagnostic steps to take afterwards so I will need to know how it went first

Sorry it took so long. Kind of a when I can project if you know what I mean. Did not find any indicator on the dash & the brake lights do work.

You said sometimes it works sometimes not, are you making sure your above the speed it has to be to set? I think it is around 35mph or faster.
