    So my cruise control doesn't work and looking under the dash at the cables I noticed the throttle cable has like a plastic piece on it but the cruise control doesn't seem to?

    Basically, does this look right?

    Any info would help.

    That all looks correct.

    However none of that has anything to do with cruise control.

    One is the throttle cable and the one with all the slack is the transmission kick-down cable.

    Probably the most common issue with cruise control is very close to where you were.

    There is a largish rubber vacuum hose near the brake pedal. Pressing the brake pedal opens the hose to open air and breaks the vacuum controlling the throttle, canceling the cruise control.

    What can happen is the rubber hose works itself away from the seal on the brake pedal bracket, and stops sealing even if the brake is not being pressed.

    The hose is on a friction fitting, and the fix is to work the hose back down to the seal a little bit. I'm not saying this is your issue... not enough clues, but it's easy to check and fix.
