On the 2013 the cruise control works great for days when it wants to. And sometimes you can push thr button a 100 times before it works and other times it wont work at all

This is usually caused by the cruise control brake switch. Where safe but with car on the road with cruise dropping out, can you set cruise and keep it running by lifting the brake pedal up towards you? If so, then look at the brake pedal switch and locate and adjust the position of the switch slightly so that it does not disengage prematurely.

I had a mechanic check my car once for abs problems and apparently that made the cruise work more often but it still does have some problems so i think the problem is connected to brakes but not in the pedal, somewhere else
