Probably. Or a small piece of stone is stuck between the pad and disc.

    Take the wheel off, remove the pads and take a look.

    Okay I will have to get someone to do that. If it turns out to be the pad- how long can I drive on it?

    How much damage to the disc do you want. Can't tell without checking if the pad has enough fibre on it and is not metal to metal.

I have a hollow sound in rear , I have recently replaced brakes rotors, pads etc, had a aligment done tires rotated , when he did back brakes he stated emegency brake was snapped but didnt have to replace...

I have heard a lot of descriptions for brake noises but the term hollow does not bring anything to mind. Can you be more specific about it? Does it happen when you stop? Can you apply just the parking brake and see if it happens?

Estimate for new battery tire rod repair and 4 new tires for the 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

The tie rods are part of the steering system not connected to the battery. If you have an estimate from a shop it should show a battery on a different line than a tie rod or tie rod end. Tires vary greatly in price depending on size, use and brand. Many tire dealer websites hae do-it-yourself tire pricing allowing you to choose different options.

It is for an oil change mainly and any other service your maintenance manual suggests at the mileage interval. It needs to be reset after each oil change to be accurate.

Clicking noise in the front end when making turns

Most likely this a broken CV joint and this means replacing the axle.
