Check your passenger side (right) rear wheel speed sensor...
I have the same, changed all the wheel speed sensors and everything works, but ABS light is still on so I guess there is a problem with the module maybe. Not going to investigate further though I think.

a wheel sensor or other ABS malfunction will shut of your cruise control. you need to read the codes first off then let us know what they are so we can help you.
