SOURCE: I have a 2008 Honda LXP purchased Novemebr 2008.

from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material

SOURCE: Weird noises in drive and reverse

The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.

I have a 2005 Tahoe and recently the SERVICE STABILITY came on the dash board. It makes a real high pitched squealing noise while driving and it's now constantly making the noise. And getting worse. I know...


This stuff is my specialty, sounds like POSSIBLY your abs pump motor failing (the abs module mounts to the abs hydraulic pump where all the brake lines go into) i.e abs module=brain abs pump=muscle to put it simply. get the fault code(s), its going to be something like C0265 or C1214 basically "C" then 4 numbers. I can tell you EXACTLY what your problem is WITHOUT having to throw a bunch of money away by replacing unnecessary parts.

  • BRAKES - SQUEAK NOISE ON BRAKE PEDAL APPLICATION
TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN
Bulletin No.: 08-05-22-002C
Date: April 07, 2009
Subject:
Squeak Noise On Brake Apply (Remove Brake Fluid from Master Cylinder and Refill)
Condition
Some customers may comment on a squeak noise when the brake pedal is applied or when released. This noise is normally heard when the brake pedal is slowly applied with the engine on or off, but can occur when the brake pedal is released. The noise may be isolated to the master cylinder area.
Correction
To correct this concern, remove as much of the old brake fluid from the master cylinder as possible and refill with a new DOT 3 brake fluid, P/N 88862806 (in Canada, use P/N 88862807). Start the vehicle and fully cycle the brake pedal until the noise diminishes to allow the new fluid to enter the system. hope this helps! -Tim

Squeaking and grinding noise when I apply the brakes


Try replacing or resurfacing your rotors and brake hardware. Using brake pads similar to the oem will also help stop any problems.

WHEEL SQUEAKS WHEN DRIVING


There is a small metal tab on the brake pad made to make noise
when the brakes are close to worn out,the noise goes away under
braking,I suspect the pads are in need of replacement.Make sure
the rear brakes get checked for proper adjustment at the same time.

How do i get my brake caliper to quit sticking and retract properly? I can hear my brake pad rubbing the rotor when I drive and no brake are applied.


If you can hear a squeak from the brake it is an indicator attached to the brake pad to let you know it is time to change pads. If it is not releasing you will generally have a pull to that side when driving. Disc brakes do not move away from the rotor as drum brakes do from the drum. They only apply pressure to the rotor or release pressure but stay in contact with it. The squeak is designed to keep you from running the brakes down to where the rotor would be damaged.

I hear a squeak noise on the driver side front tire dont know if its the tire or rod


the easy whay to fine this out is to put the spare tiyer on and drive it
if it still squeaks it could be the disk pad binding up a little on the disk
wip them both out on both sides and apply some copper ease to the back of the pads making sure they can slide easly in there holders
the next time your driving and you here this squeaking noise jut apply a very little presher on the foot brake to push the pads onto the disks if it stops the squeak its pads

Front brakes make noise when applied after installing new pads.


it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.
