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?

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.

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.
