    it sounds like you have come to the right diagnosis -
    a new switch should take care of the problem -

    the hardest part will be removing the airbag -

    very first thing - REMOVE THE SIR FUSE - it is under the back seat -

    ......... and remember that the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm also overrides Cruise Control. A switch that is out of adjustment will not let cruise engage with a click of the steering wheel button.

    Study the entire sticky post just above this one - "How to pull codes". Use the proper sections for your car, DIC, DIC control buttons and OBD series.
