The cruise control goes out when the CEL comes on, or when the CEL is on with blinking cruise, indicating an exhaust emission problem.
That's no problem, drive on. You're better off without cruise control anyway.
When I'm at the wheel I'm the only one allowed to control the car. Much safer that way.
Yes, get the radiator and change it when you have time. It will crack across the header tank and lose coolant, there will be signs of green ooze drying around the tank when it's about to die. But not if it's cracking at the bottom, which I don't know about at all, mine have always gone at the top.
I think it's cold winters that kill them quicker.
