Would it be possible that those wires are long enough to attach to the fuse box terminals? Don't attach them, just see if they are long enough.

Glenn, those wires go to the alarm horn which is missing from the firewall. Cover the orange wire.

UK spec ML's don't have an alarm horn on the firewall but have a siren module located somewhere near the right wheel well. I don't know if the Australia spec ML's are the same.
