SOURCE: abs light on

They had to disconnect the abs in order to change the pads so it set off the abs light. you can just drive for a while and it might go away or you can disconnect the battery for 10 seconds but be careful the car player might ask for the code in order to play it.

I recently had the brake pads of my 2007 Kia Picanto replaced because the front brakes were making an irritating metal-to-metal screeching sound. Now, it still makes a sound whenever I step on the brake. ...

If the rotors were not turned when the pads were replaced, then it is true. Also, if the pads are not the correct material for the car )i.e. Metallic, Semi-Metallic) then they will squeak. Also, there is a sensor that may be bent that touches the rotor in order to notify you the pads are getting low, and that may need adjusting (just needs to be bent out a little bit). Check you invoice for the pad repair and make sure the rotors were turned, if not return the car to the location you had the pads replaced and ask why they weren't. Let me know if I can help you any further.

I have a Toyota Ist that i bought 4 months ago. The problem I have is the noise whenever I use the car brakes. I have taken the car severally to different mechanics (at least 5 times!!) and I am at my wits...

Well, when I have a screeching problem, I try to use Wagner Thermoquiet brake pads that have the shim built in, instead of standard ones.

They seem to stop more quietly than other brands.

The technicians that say that there is nothing wrong are probably just measuring the thickness of the brake discs, and the thickness of the brake pads, and maybe look at the surface of the brake discs for glazing, and don't want to replace parts unnecessarily.

So, I would ask them about this problem and see if they can install the Thermoquiet Wagner brake pads to rectify the problem.

ABS has more to do with pulsing 5 to 6 times a second when trying to come to a halt to avoid locking the brakes. I don't think that it is the cause of your screeching sound coming from the front.

LOUD sounds when braking(99 Corolla)

It is dust/rust and it comes from a low quality or a high carbon metalic brake pad or shoe. this problem can be corrected by using the OE manufacturer parts or the use of Ceramic pads/shoes. However don't be fooled by "Ceramic" on a box, it may just contain ceramic particals and not be a true ceramic pad/shoe. In over 16 years in automotive specialty repair I have found the PD line of the Wagner Thermo Quiet pads/shoes to be the best economical fix or the Top of the line Akebono Ceramic line will fix what ailes you.
