Wired brake distribution block

What's the wire for to my distribution block on my '72 Cutlass with drum brakes all around? It goes into a white plastic piece but I didn't want to pull it and break something. Also didn't want to unscrew it and brake fluid shoot everywhere. What is it and how do you disconnect it?

That switch will turn the light on in the event of a frt or rear pressure failure, I believe you pinch the widest part to remove?

Yep, it's the brake pressure failure warning light.
Just unplug.
