 Is that lead connected or just hanging in the breeze?  Either way it is not mission critical.

rumb

Probably plugs into the brake fluid level sensor on the plastic reservoir.

     The black connector is plugged in. the plastic nub looking piece is what had me worried !   Now seeing the phto it looks like it is just a is a solid plastic nub, unless there is a small hole there I cannot see. Or someone altered it for some reason........... ???

Noting is missing.  All is normal.  This is a switch that turns on the red brake warning light if/when the pedal goes too far down.  After repairing the brake issue that caused the pedal to do to the floor, you simply push the little plastic nub back in to the switch, and it'll turn the red brake warning light off.

Looking at photo, looks like there is a major crack right below the plastic container I assume it is the brake fluid holder !!!   Oh................the pain............
