No code scanner required prior to 2016. Go into the diagnostics screen... you should have a service manual to describe all the codes for you, or if you want to list what you find, someone here can tell you.
Some fault codes will display on the right instrument display, but I'm assuming that isn't the case here.
To access DiAG, remember there are two modes... DiAG for the ECU, and another for ABS. Access is the same for both, except ABS requires you have a test harness installed or a shorting method for two wires in the ABS diagnostic connector. First, Turn the kill switch to OFF.
For ECU (which may give you some clues), press and hold TCS and Reset buttons, turn on ignition, continue to hold the buttons for 8 seconds until DiAG appears. Release then re-press both buttons for a further 2 seconds. You now can scroll either way with the TCS or Reset button, making note of the readings to the right of the code listings. When you get to 61, it will show you the number of Fault Codes stored then if any, will display them every two seconds continuously so you can write them down.
To go into ABS Diagnostics, must remove battery panel to access the ABS diagnostic connector, and bridge/short the light blue and black wire terminals, then (kill switch OFF) enter diagnostics as previously described.
Check your brake lever switches are not sticking (do clutch as well while you're at it), and that rear brake pedal is not sticking.
First thing I would do is clean your wheel sensors... remove any white aluminum corrosion and clean the hole, then grease the hole and the plastic sleeve with silicone grease. If they were corroded even slightly, see if your ABS light goes out after a cleaning. There may be fault codes existing due to not receiving proper signals from the sensors, which can also affect cruise control.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
