1) swap battery. Often batteries get so low the current in all the systems overwhelms them - while they are still perfectly able to turn the crank. I had ESP/BAS until the battery finally gave out - new battery, no ESP/BAS, and I didn't change any other parts.
2) scrub that gack out of there! get the codes re-set and wait for them to re-appear. you could be waiting some while
3) while waiting, look at eBay and similar for crashed ML's. The chances are that loom is modular and you can either swap that bit out, or buy the whole connector and chop out good for bad. Heat-shrink sleeving and a little gas-powered soldering iron is the key!
