I was on the freeway today and I go to switch lanes and all of a sudden my cruise goes out. I set it again and turn on my right turn signal and again, it goes off. So again I...well, you get the picture. Anyone ever run into this?

Is it only doing that with the right turn signal? Just throwing this out there but I wonder if some light at the back is lighting up when it shouldn't. On some cars the brake lights are tied in w/ the cruise. Do you have a spoiler w/ a brake light?

Yes, only the right.

Yes I do, an aftermarket one. This is the first time I have noticed it though. I did have a turn signal/brake bulb out as well. And on top of that I noticed that when I turn my right signal on, my third brake light (the spoiler) is flashing as well. So it may all be related?

Either way, the brake like on the spoiler should not be flashing. Someone either wired it up wrong, or something is shorting.

I am going to take it to the place that installed it on Tuesday and have them check it for me.

Yep - definitely related. The turn signal light is backfeeding into the BOO switch, which is shutting off your cruise control.
