The ESP and BAS warning lights may illuminate due to a failed brake light switch. Replacement of the failed switch should correct this concern. A recall on certain 2000-2003 models have been recalled for a related issue - for more information please click here»
AC system leaks and/or a faulty evaporator temperature sensor can cause poor AC cooling. The failed sensor can prevent the AC compressor from coming on. Leaks cause a low refrigerant level, which reduces the ability to cool.
The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to run poorly or stall.
The power window switch may fail and the windows will not raise. The main switch at the front center console is commonly at fault. A failed switch will require replacement.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
It has been determined that, under certain circumstances, use of the brake pedal may not disengage the cruise control as expected. All other means of disengaging the cruise control should remain effective. If the driver were to "pump" the brake pedal instead of applying consistent force, the level of force necessary to disengage the cruise control may be unusually high. Dealers will perform the repairs necessary to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin September of 2011.

The seat switch panel problem is well known. What you can do is to keep the seat a little higher so the leather-cushioning does not touch the upper side of the switch cover assembly. Especially older ML's with sagging front seats (where the sides bulge out a little) have the panel breakage problems. You can fix them easily with epoxy glue, a screw with a large washer and a handbook with new cursing words.
