I think a CEL and flashing cruise means your car is in limp mode (someone confirm this), basically a failsafe fallback the ecu has when it thinks something has gone wrong that could damage the motor, it will limit revs and boost.
First don't disconnect the battery to clear the code, this only makes the warning go away it doesn't make the problem that is causing it go away. This is kinda like taking the batteries out of our smoke detectors in your house when they go off instead of putting out the fire.
Get a code reader, AP, tactrix and laptop or take it to a shop and have them read the code, then come make here with that info and we can help you better.
Good luck.
