Question Cruise Control SET light Blinks

I ran into something weird the other day while on a road trip. I had my cruise control set at 70mph and it disengaged all of a sudden. I thought maybe i hit the button by mistake so I reengaged it. A short while after it disengaged again and this time the SET light was blinking and I couldn't reengage it. After shutting off the truck it would work for a really short while ( approx 2 mins ) and then the blinking SET light. I read in the manual it would blink if the system picks up a malfunction any idea what could be wrong? I also get the infamous VDC light on occasions problem too. Not sure if that matters.

Any help would be appreciated

Red face flashing set light

I have the exact same problem with my 2005 Xterra. Am on a long 2500 mile trip and 250 miles into the trip, after a pit stop, the set light is flashing and the cruise is DOA. Other posts show check fuses . . . did that no joy. Just learned it might be the brake lamp switch, or the 3-switch package in the steering wheel. Anyone have any recommendations other than the shotgun approach of replacing everything?

I'm still on the road trip, so stopping at a dealership for a fix, that lasts all day is not in my schedule? 2000 miles without cruise is going to kill my right foot!

my 01 did that but i was going through some really deep water so i figured something got wet. Turned the truck off and on again and it was fine.

I think this is fairly common, and I am unsure that it is even a problem. Used to happen with my MR2 often. I would not stress it. Another thought, clean the connection in the CC module.

Does any one have a diagram that shows the interior fuse block with labels as to what each one is for a 2001 Xterra? My panel cover was missing when I bought it.

Mine started doing this as well, long drive, in the rain. I just put it in neutral and turn the key off and on and it went away, never came back. Anyone ever find out WHY this is happening?
