If the brake pads are thin you may be hearing the squealer ( a wear indicator built into the disc brake pad. When the pads are thin the squealer can contact the rotor reminding you to have the brakes checked

Clicking noise brake pedal


It possibly is the brake light switch, this is mounted on the top of the brake pedal, check the brake lights are working? The switch is not normally loud enough to hear? Check the area around the brake pedal, make sure things like heater air pipes are secure and away from the pedal. If the brakes are ok and the brake lights are working, it has to be something fouling the pedal.

Headlights don't come on automatically


One way to turn off the automatic headlights when the ignition is to apply the parking brake. That dinging sound you hear when you shift into drive is also common with the parking brake applied.

Release the parking brake.

Every time i put on my breaks, there is a really loud popping sound. really loud. i have a 2001 sunfire. help me please.


Hi Megan,

I appreciate you adding me to your list of contacts and asking me to help you with your problem.

However, I don't know if I can be much help from here. Noises can be very difficult to diagnose when you actually have the vehicle in front of you. All I can tell you for sure is that the noise you are hearing is not normal and if it happens only when you apply the brakes, then it is most definately brake-related. I have had some vehicles making noised as you described because of broken brake hardware. I have had some with similar customer complaints that have had loose or missing caliper mounting pins. Then I have had some that the problem was not the brakes at all, but rather lower control arm bushings that were coming apart and applying the brake was making the entire front suspension shift and make a loud popping noise.
My professional advice is to take it by a professional auto repair shop and have one of the technicians drive the vehicle. They may be able to give you some idea of what is going on just by hearing and/or "feeling" the noise themseves. Then again, they may tell you that the wheels need to be removed for a full brake and suspension inspection before they can tell you anything.

I wish I had a more "cut-and-dry" answer for you, but I am afraid that is pretty much impossible at this point.

Good luck,

I notice when I come to a stop like at a traffic light, I hear a squeak from what sounds like the front passenger wheel. I had it inspected in June and they didn't mention the brakes, it passed the...


Disc brakes usually include a part called a wear indicator. A wear indicator is a small piece of metal attached to the brake pad that contacts the brake rotor when the pad material has been worn down to a certain level. When the wear indicator grinds against the rotor, it makes a squealing noise as you apply the brakes. This noise is a signal which tells you it's time to have your brakes examined.
In other words, noisy brakes aren't something to mess around with. If you hear that sound when you apply the brakes in your vehicle, have them checked out as soon as possible.
I hope this helps.

Metal on metal noise when driving. Sounds like brake noise when brake pads are in need of replacement. Sound goes away when the brake is applied. Car only has 20,000 miles on it (2006).


Hello tgiro7: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The fact the noise goes away when stepping on the brake pedal says the problem most likely is in the brake area. The pads could be worn out even at 20,000 miles.If the noise sounds like it comes from the front remove the wheels and check the front pads. If the pads are bad most likely the rotors are also bad.Same would apply if the noise emits from the rear. When you have the wheels off check to make sure the calipers will slide in and out on the mount pins. Should they be stuck on binding the pads will wear excessively and prematurely fail. The calipers must move freely on the pins. If you drive with your left foot on the brake pedal? The amount of pressure required to apply the brakes and not stop the vehicle is 1 to 2 pounds of pressure. Wont turn on the brake lights but will put pressure on the calipers. This in turn will wear out the brake pads. Another thing to look at would be an out of adjustment brake switch. Reach down and grab hold of the brake pedal. Give a firm tug on the pedal. Should you feel the pedal give and hear a click or two the switch was set to deep and holding the brakes on.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Squeeky brakes


how bad do they squeak, is this after a recent brake job? minor squeak is normal and doesn't affect the performance of the brakes, u can apply a product call "brake quiet" to the back of the disk brake pads, it really works, contact Napa auto parts to buy this.

How do i fix a squeeky wheel, possibly bearing?


A bearing typically has more of grinding type of rumble rather than a squeek.

Try checking your brakes...the caliper may not be releasing completely. Cleaning them can solve the problem and prevent premature wear.
