There are 2 common problems with cruise on the 850. One involves the
brake pedal switch, hook your foot under the pedal, and pull up on it
(the opposite direction to the way you normally push it) as you're
trying the cruise. If it now works, remove the kick panel and bend the
bracket so the switch is moved closer to the pedal's arm. The other
problem lives under the battery where the pump is. The cruise vacuum
pump is bolted to the bottom of the battery tray, and acid from the
battery can cause problems. If there's a problem in this area, it's
usually obvious (split or kinked hose, bare or disconnected wires etc.)
