When the ABS indicator light come on, it means an error had been detected. Even though the light has gone off, trouble codes would still be stored in the memory and I would suggest retrieving the code and see what it says.
Since vehicle is equipped with ABS, look for a sandy stretch of road and while driving, perform sudden brakings to test if the ABS works. This might also solve the soft pedal pressure. Ensure the road is clear of other road users to avoid accidents. You need not be travelling at high speeds, just enough to make the ABS work when wheels locks.
