Hello.....the first thing you should do is : check your ABS sensors to see why is the ABS light on.

The brake rumbling can be from a false ABS signal ,like a bad sensor or a bad wire connection or even a bad abs ring on the axle shaft.....Also it can be just from a brake problem or a bad wheel bearing....

Good luck......accept my answer if i helped , positive feedback is always welcome..Thank you...

Is there any danger in driving it on the highway as is? If yes, which point(s) of the points you mentioned would be a safety question?

Your brakes will work just fine, the ABS is just to help in case of emergency stop , it does not let the wheels lock and keeps your car strait (?) on the road braking the wheels that the system see that need to stop....

What i would to be safe, i would lift the car and check if any play on the wheel bearings or in the front end....

good luck...thank you....
