sounds more like you wired the stereo wrong because the power sources are totally separate. A $3 voltmeter can confirm power to the cruise system. The original radio has a vehicle speed input to provide dynamic volume and you probably wired the stereo wrong causing it to short. This will kill the cruise because this same circuit is used for cruise. Maybe get a wiring diagram on ebay for $10 and you will see every wire the two circuits have in common
