Hi Brett. The ML320 has had some issues with the sensors associated with these alarms. You may want to have the control module checked first. Other sources of triggers here include the stop-lamp switch, steering angle sensor, or a booster diaphragm travel sensor. It's at the point where you need to have a tech run a diagnostic to see what's going on. Good luck!

Try replacing the brake switch at the brake pedal first. It is an inexpensive guess and you can do it yourself. Part is about $25.00.
