The ABS modulator (hydraulic unit) can leak air into the brake system and cause a low brake pedal. A new ABS modulator will be needed if it is diagnosed to be the source of the leak.

Brakes failed at stop sign. Fender bender car in front of me.
Ticketed for accident. Next day, dealer found air in ABS Modulator.
Cost of repair: $1,400. Two days to repair due to part having to be
flown in from California. Honda refuses to acknowledge low milage
rule and said warranty expired. Thank you Honda.. :(

Peddle got soft 3 different times. Went almost to floor last time. super dangerous situation. After Honda giving me the run around they finally realized there was a big problem. Air in system. Replaced ABS system and that fixed it.
