Question Cruise Control wont turn off

Hey all
I was using the search feature but saw no closure on some people with cruise control issues. (I have an 05 330Ci)
My issue is my cruise control light came on and it works as it should but the damn thing wont turn off!
I tried pushing the I/O button and nada.

WTF? This car is turning into an electrical headache. I never replaced a fuse on a Honda in 7 years of ownership nor had an electrical problem
So far I replaced an amp, the rear LED's some crapped out, the sunroof control module took a crap, and the stability control system needed the module replaces. Knock on wood the car runs fine, but this little stuff is killing me.

I just want everything to all work right at one time.
Not a tall order.
So any solutions? Someone please? Lots of talented people here, so I know Im looking in the right place.

I have 700+ miles left before I hit 50k and the factory warranty goes bye bye. I'm glad I got a 3rd party warranty for peanute for 3 years because I'm thinking I might need it.

Dealer took a few days and tested a laundry list of items eventually it was just a short in the cluster and they replaced the whole thing, they also replaced my steering wheel with a new one, and tightened up the panel under the care where some clips were missing.

All in all my factory warranty had 60 mi left on it and I think I did pretty good.

All is well now and enjoying the car immensely.

BTW I had a loaner for 2 days and they dropped my car off at my house and tok the loaner for me, now that's service!

Nope, Dealer made it his headache. got 200 mi to go on the factory warranty and my supplemental warranty kicks in. thats a $100.00 deductible but it's worth it sice I can take it back to bimmer and have them fix a laundry list of stuff if I need to and only cost me $100.00. The mechanic usually hooks me up with extra stuff anyhow.

Such a small thing was a big hassle to fix. Got a new cluster, steering wheel. He replaced all the plastic under the car and in the wheel wheels. Also got a newsunroof a few montsh back.

My Ride: 325ci
Sorry to reanimate a necro post. I have just had this same fault occur in my 325Ci. I was doing some PM and checking my fuse box for blown fuses. I found one on the front cigarette lighter. Replaced it and have since had the CC light stay lit and have lost function of the multi function switch. Anyone else have a fix for this without going to the dealer?
