Cruise control will not stay on

Cruise control on our 2016 Dutchstar will not stay on. The Freightliner chassis was built in 2015.
Turn cruise on and after 5-15 seconds, goes off.
This happens if engaged or not.
The real mysterious part is when the cruise control goes off, the back up camera screen goes blank for a second but comes right back on.
The above happens even when parked with the engine running running. If engine is turn off but key is in on position and the cruise is turned on, it stays on forever until key is turned off.
Any suggestions as to the cause will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
2016 Dutchstar 3736.

I had a 2015 DS 4018 that had similar issue. Freightliner had a recall for a brake pedal spring. If you pull brake pedal up with your foot the cruise would work. Once Freightliner replaced spring it went away. I didn’t have issue with camera. Good Luck

Had the issue on Essex and it was a loss connection down in the outside under drivers seat smart wheel wiring. Disconnected plug in on Black box and check to make sure not loss and problem gone.
