Cruise Control set light is blinking

Just like what the title says, the cruise control set light is blinking and is not allowing the cruise control to function at all...I have a 2007 Frontier SE 4x4. Do I need to take it to the dealership, or is there a way to reset it? There were no previous problems, but the truck just came back from the dealership last week to fix a leaky AC drain line...

Cruise is controlled by the ECM, and isnt a user servicable part as far as I know . You could pull off the switch panel and make sure all the connections are good...but I would just take it back.

This is all I could find.

When the ECM detects any of the following conditions, the ECM will cancel the cruise operation and inform the driver by blinking indicator lamp.
Engine coolant temperature is slightly higher than the normal operating temperature, CRUISE lamp may blink slowly. When the engine coolant temperature decreases to the normal operating temperature, CRUISE lamp will stop blinking and the cruise operation will be able to work by depressing SET/COAST switch or RESUME/ACCELERATE switch.

Malfunction for some self-diagnoses regarding ASCD control: SET lamp will blink quickly.

it seemed to be blinking quickly...what's the ASCD control? I just drove the truck now, and everything seemed fine, but I'm still curious as to why it happened in the first place? My wife brought the truck home tonight with it doing this, so I'm not really sure of the conditions present when it the problem initially occurred.

oh, I found out that ASCD control means...automatic speed control device

It needs to go to the dealer, and put on the computer to find problem. If it's now working, I would take it in and at least have them make a note of the problem.

your cruise won't work when indicator is blinking, there are stored fault codes in the system. Take it in.

I would also take it back to the dealer, being and '07 and all. If the dealer can fix it, it should be covered under warranty.
