Why is the brake pedal soft and when i apply the brakes it starts to go low. Can the struts trigger the ABS light or is it the speed sensor?

    Neither the struts or speed sensor would cause soft brake pedal, that's usually a hydraulic problem like a leaking internally master cylinder or air in the lines. Not the struts themselves could cause an ABS light to come on but a bad wheel speed sensor would.

    no, your brakes need to be replaced in a big way. Usually the front brakes go out more than the rear brakes. Take it to your dealer and they will tell you how much percentage you have left on your brakes both front and rear. If they don't tell you up front, then ask them.
