Why would cruise control in a 1990 Honda Accord speed the car up to 72 mph when engaged?

My educated guess would be that the speed sensor is broken and reading slow, so the cruise control unit doesn't know what speed the car is actually going. Go to your library and see if they have the shop manual for your car. It will have the exact answer. More than likely, with the primitive chip, the computer had it engaged at 72. then something happened, an accident, a jolt, lighning (not likely lightning) or something shorted out, freezing the chip at 72. if you replace the chip, it should do the trick. Hint, a simmilar thing happened to me.

Yes, with either a OEM Honda cruise control unit or aftermarket unit.

On my 2000 accord the cruise control panel on the left of the steering wheel is out. But the dashboard light still works and so does the actual cruise control. As long as the cc still works its not a big deal.

To the left of the steering wheel, below the dashboard is a button that says cruise control. Push that button in, the dash will illuminate the cruise control light. Then, as you reach the speed you want to cruise at, push the button on the steering wheel that says "set". When you want to turn cruise control off, simply tap the brake pedal and the cruise will go off.

It tells the computer how fast you're going. The data it produces is used by the speedometer and the cruise control system.

Begin by looking under the drivers side dash, you should be looking for a 1.5" x 2" black box. BTW - Is this an OEM or aftermarket cruise control?

The 1997 Honda Civic cruise control module can be found on the firewall in the engine compartment. The cruise control module will be on the drivers side of the firewall.
