This might be a problem with the integrated power module at the left front of engine compartment. Both the abs and cruise control go to that. There are 3fuses inside it though so check those as well as worn or frayed wiresnear it as one may be shorting out. I might also be a brake switch problem or a wire leading to it as well. Also check for corrosion around or on the module as it may not being grounding properly. Clean your battery terminal ends as well to make sure they are grounding as well.
