Most likely it's a wheel bearing going out.., If you turn to the right, or the left when driving the noise will change pitch. Been there done that.....

It could be the warning indicator on the brake rotor saying that your pads are getting time ot change, or it could be a CV-joint going out????

Humming sound in cabin


It is very likely you hear the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank. If the noise is very low then don't concern yourself over it it is normal to some degree.. If it is really loud the pump bearing is failing.

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.
