It most likely is your brake light switch located under the steering column above the pad of the brake pedal. This not functioning or not connected would cause your cruise not to work as it disengages the cruise when you depress the brakes. Remove the panel right under the steering column and the metal plate be hind that and you should be looking right at it.

fuses are located behind the glovebox and under the hood, passenger side, in front of the battery. Brake lights do not have a relay only a fuse; and im too lazy at the moment to go out in the rain to see witch one has the brakes fuse in it.

Also remember if you did blow a fuse, it did it to prevent an electrical overload and a possible fire. Thats what fuses are for. If one did blow you need to find the reason why, not just replace it.
