Another part-time CC

My (05') cruise control has also been working part time. Started shutting off while I'm am at cruise speed, and doesn't like to engage at speeds over 50mph. I tried playing with the throttle, brakes and clutch while at speed with no results either with making the CC shut off or keeping it from shutting off. After a few hours on the slab I noticed that the slightest grade either uphill or downhill would trigger a shut off.

From the previous thread on CC problems I did the diagnostic with the ignition and the micro switches off-on process and everything worked up till the last check which is to spin the rear wheel. Well, no light on or off with rear wheel, do I have a bad ABS sensor, is there an adjustment to the sensor? I did hit the rear brake hard on a dirt road today and the ABS seems to be working fine. Thank for any ideas. -Chuck-
