2003 Ram 3500 My cruise control quit working. However the light comes on when I push the button on. My husband is very busy so I want to figure out the problem myself if I can. With help of course. I looked for a fuse under the hood but nothing says cruise. Thank you

No separate fuse for the cruise control. It is computer (PCM) controlled. Any 'ck eng' light or fault codes?
You can try the key-dance here:

Write any codes down. Not everything will set a fault code and the PCM may have to be interrogated by a scan tool. Watch the tool display for switch on/off states (off/on, set, resume, cancel, etc). The brake pedal switch, if out-of adjustment or defective can also cause the cruise not to operate. This should also be shown on the scan tool as a PCM input. Some tool displays will also give a 'reason for last cruise default' which may point to the problem.
Many auto parts stores will let you use a scan tool across the counter for out in the parking lot if you leave a 'hostage' ID card with them.
This thread may get moved to the Ram truck or the Technical support section for more visibility.
