Hmmm 156 2.4 JTD VDC / Cruise Control Gremlins

Looking for some guidance, if someone can shed some light it would be greatly appreciated.

I have a late 2003 2.4 JTD Lusso sport waggon (150), generally in top notch condition but has intergalactic miles.

Since I have had the car it would occasionally give a VDC alarm if I went over a pothole or turned very sharply, but these were few and far between and would always reset when the ignition went off. However, now the VDC alarm is coming on a lot, even in smooth, steady driving, and the cruise control also wont engage. The green symbol comes on the dash, but physically it wont engage. If I pull the fuses, all is well for about 5 miles, then back to its failed status.

I will take the car to a specialist of needed, but is there anything people would recommend for some quick home fault finding? Its possible that something shook itself loose, as I drive around Southern Ireland a lot and the roads can be pretty harsh.

Its a long shot, but I could do without having to have the thing in the garage for a few days at the moment whilst they play at hunting electrical gremlins.
