2005 ford explorer

Need some help! My '05 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD has an odd quirk. It only happens when the cruise is on at lower speeds, 30-40 MPH. I’m driving along and all of a sudden the truck shuts down. No accelerator. no power steering, dash all lit up. I wrestle the truck to the side of the road, turn the key off and then re-start it. Turns over, runs no problem. The truck runs great otherwise, has 67K on it. Not real comfy with this surprise! And of course my extended warranty expired last November!!!

Have you had any CEL’s?

Not sure what a CEL is? But when the mechanic hooked it up to the scanner, no codes came up.
