Question about 2007 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

Brake noise Not all the time but may e about twice a day I get a noise coming from the brakes that sounds like a wet finger running around the top of a wine glass. Honda machined the rotors. Fix worked for about 10 days and now it is happening again. Dealer said the noise is normal. I think if you spend 30000 on a van you should not hear your brakes. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem..2007 one can find a problem with the brakes..its almost embarassing to pull up in the car pool line and have this happen. It sometimes is louder than other times. I agree we pay too much for this to be occurring. I have bought several new vehicles and never have had this problem. I'm not sure I buy 'this is normal noise' theory..

    Same problem. We have been told there is no fix and Honda is aware. However, there are no service recalls or any indications on Honda's pages. It is very disappointing that this can not be solved; or at least told to perspective buyers. I have had several cars with brake noise but this is not due to pads or rotors wearing. There maybe a combination of those or maybe a hub issue; but to be told that you just have to live with it is unacceptable.

This is normal noise and not a defect, I do realize it is irritating and to some worrisome, there are brake pads on the market to reduce the noise you have, the are made by 2 of the best brake parts companies in the world, one is Wagner, the other Bendix, inquire into there Quiet Stop line of brake pad products, go to there web sites to read about them or visit a local NAPA or Car Quest to name a few parts stores, they are not very expensive, less than the dealer charges, but in my opinion better.

Sound when braking which is coming while car stopping and releasing brake pads

You probably need to have your brakes checked asap. They could be worn and the longer they are used without repair/replacement, the more expensive it could be (and dangerous!).

Emergency brake light comes on and makes a grinding sound

The brake light will come on if your brake fluid level falls below a certain point, indicating you're losing brake fluid. Grinding noise indicates your brake pads are shot. Get to a brake shop.

Clicking noise brake pedal

It possibly is the brake light switch, this is mounted on the top of the brake pedal, check the brake lights are working? The switch is not normally loud enough to hear? Check the area around the brake pedal, make sure things like heater air pipes are secure and away from the pedal. If the brakes are ok and the brake lights are working, it has to be something fouling the pedal.

I have a 96 Tahoe and when i press the brake pedal i hear a hissing sound by the pedal and engine sometimes stalls, what could the problem be ?

That sounds like a brake booster problem. The brake booster runs on engine vacuum to help make the brake pedal easier to push and easier to stop the tahoe. When a booster develops an internal leak, you can hear the vacuum escaping through the leak when you step on the brake. The engine stalls because the vacuum leak in the brake booster also causes a large vacuum leak for the engine.

To verify that this is actually the problem, go outside the vehicle with the hood open. Find the large brake fluid reservoir attached to a large round metal black (usually) canister on the driver's side of the firewall. (back of the engine compartment.) There is a large black rubber hose pushed into the top of the black canister, which is the vacuum line attached to the brake booster. Pull the rubber hose out of the grommet on the booster and stick your finger over the hose. Have someone start the tahoe. You will feel a considerable amount of vacuum pulling at your finger, and if you take your finger off the hose, the engine will stall. Also have someone step on the brakes while your finger is over the vacuum hose. If the noise is gone then you know the problem is in the brake booster.
Don't forget to re-attach the vacuum line to the brake booster. Failure to do this will result in the engine running very rough (if at all) and the brakes will require excessive effort to try to stop the tahoe.

Noise coming from brakes so I replaced the brakes and rotors and now I am still getting a noice coming from that direction.

You did not specify front or back, or whether the noise happens when braking, or changes when braking...But my though is wheel bearings may be your actual issue...

My toyota 2001 rav 4 makes rubbing sound only when i step on the brakes, thought it was the front brake early indicator, so changed front brakes..they needed it! But still makes the noise..sounds like it's...

Yes, this will be the rear brakes. Most of these are the same design as the front and are as easy to replace. You should always change all the front and back brakes at the same time, as it will affect braking and handling.

Change rear brakes and your problem will be resolved.

Getting stuck in park, not every time but atleast twice a day. I pump brake and eventually goes out of park. Thanks

Sounds like you might be having a issue with brake light switch which is locate on top part of brake pedal. The shift lock mechanism works off of the brake switch.
