Check the release switch that connects to the brakes. On many vehicles the brake light switch will cause the cruise to disengage. Next time, try pulling up on the brake pedal when you engage cruise. If it works when you're pulling up, you might be able to adjust the switch. It's physically connected to the brake pedal.
