SOURCE: squeak in left front end

i would still bet youre dealing with worn brake pads, theres an off chance it has a bearing issue but brakes are first thought. maybe has caused them to wear down quicker ie. holding caliper, restricted flex hose, or even economy parts from previous repair.

SOURCE: Chevrolet Equinox Brake Light Flashing

If it is an amber light that says " anti lock" You will be safe, you just wont have anti lock brakes. The car may have traction controll. If so, look in the manual to be sure what light is on. As a general rule amber lights are warnings and red lights means stop. If the light stays on you will have to go to the dealer to have the code read.

SOURCE: Service stablitrak and traction control

The Service Stabilitrak and Traction Control warning messages will come on when there is a problem in the Powertrain Control computer (engine and transmission), there may or may not be a check engine light on. The first step to start is to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. You can have this done free of charge at Auto Zone or visit some AutoShop with scanner reader; without the code, we could only guess.

You have a couple choices. You can go to a shop or dealer and have them scan the system and tell you what is wrong. Once they know the problem, they will quote the repair. You can also go to most any parts store and get the codes scanned for free but... they will not tell you what is wrong. they only give the code and what it means without full diagnostic.

If you go this route, you could come back to us and we can help narrow down once we know the code. In many cases when all these lights come on, it is one of the 4 wheel speed sensors. If one sensor goes bad, the lights come on, disable the system.

This is one of the more common problems we see. A wheel speed sensor price will vary as to if it is bought afternarket or through the dealer.

Keep us updated and send us your comments.

Squeaking from front end but brakes seem fine and rotor is evenly worn

mcdevito75 here, Even brakes with wear on them can seem fine, It could be the little sensor on the brake pad signifying lower brake pads or it could be some brake dust on the back of the disc pads, Have your local shop check them.

Severe squeaking noise coming from the undercarraige....shocks? bushings?

Both the shocks and bushings can cause the squeaking noise. It is very common in those vehicles, and the best bet for figuring out which one is this: put some brake fluid in a squirt bottle, and put a small amount(don't get overzealous with it, as it will remove paint) on all the rubber bushings, and drive it around a little to get it worked into the joints. Brake fluid is designed to work as a lubricant in brakes without degrading the rubber parts, so it is excellent in lubricating the rubber suspension parts. If your squeaking remains, then it is probably the shock. This diagnosis, of course depends on if the squeak is that really obnoxious rubber squeak noise that comes when you push down on the front end and make the suspension travel. If the squeak is the high-pitched one that is constant when driving, and doesn't change except with speed, then it is your brakes telling you that they need new pads.

Struts were replaced but there is still squeaking in front

possible sway bar links, strut bearing plates (they sit on top of the strut), ball joints, tie rod ends. If the you can make it squeek by pushing up and down on the front, have someone do this while trying to narrow where the noise is coming from.
