    I started noticing today that my cruise control isn't working right. It will turn on while I'm sitting still but as soon as I get around 5mph it will turn off and I am not able to reactivate it after that. I am tuned with diablosport. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I've seen 2 things that are usual culprits with those symptoms:

    Speed sensor on trucks with ABS (my 1st guess in this case)
    Brake pedal switch

    Is the cruise control light turning completely off, or will it simply not engage?

    Light Turns off completely after 5mph and can't get it back on over 5mph

    Do you know how to do the key trick for codes?

    It really sounds like you have a P1501 going on and it just hasn't kicked the CEL yet. The brake switch wouldn't make the light turn completely off, but a speed sensor will.

    Is your truck 4 wheel ABS?

    yeah, 3 times. It usually takes a couple tries for me to get mine to work.
