is there a check engine light also? there are still too many possibilities, as to the cause, if ther eis a check engine light, any chain parts store will check it for free. If a code is found will start with a :C and 4 numbers...any solenoid may have seized, connector may have corrosion, the brake switch, so lets start with indicator lights....

yes, the brake light switch potentially can be the fault, the common find on the ml, is the left rear, solenoid but the check engine light info would help me more...
