Intermittent CEL

Ok my CEL comes on when i driving on the highway at about 70 mph, or when i use cruise control. when i try to use cruise control, the car smells like fried baloney and skunk (ive checked the engine bay, no signs of either). any ideas? its not on long enough to get a reading.

You will have a code saved on the pcm. Just because your CEL isnt on doesent mean you dont have a code. I have had time where I have had a CEL with no CEL light. The PCM stores this as a contineous code, this code will stay in the PCM for at least 60 cycles of the key, or will stay as long as the code is present. So check that and we'll go from there.
