I am not sure what kind of noise you are talking about as you did not post it. Jack up the car. grab the wheel top and bottom and try to move it. do the same side to side. if it will go up and down you either have a bad bearing, or a bad ball joint-if it move side to side, you have a bad tie rod. Pull off the wheel. Check that the pads are still good. Grab the brake caliper and try to move it. if it moves-check that the tightness of the bolts that hold it to the A-frame. If the pads are not worn, and everything else is tight, what you are most likely hearing is the metal in the pads grinding against the rotors, or brake dust buildup.If it is a squealing noise, Using a air compressor with a blower tip, blow out the caliper. You may also(for large buildup of brake dust) get a can of break cleaner and spray off the rotor and caliper. If grinding(and the pads are good), It may also have lost the noise reduction pad behind the brake pad that reduces that noise. This will not hurt the vehicle, but if you want it fixed, you will have to replace the pads, and have the rotor turned at you local brake shop, machine shop, or parts store. Usually about $5-$10 per rotor.

Air noise when using break peddle in a 2002 Hyundai accent

The fluid leaking out the rear seal of the master cylinder has likely swelled/damaged the rubber diaphragm in your brake booster, causing the hissing sound. Unfortunately, you will need to replace your booster.

My car Mazda Demio makes noise when moving it stops when I press the breaks

Take off the wheel where you think the noise is coming from and check your brakes and inspect the suspension. Sounds like a brake issue.

My vehicle makes a horrible sound when coasting until i put my foot on the break

so it is a drive-train problem not an engine problem and probably ( coupling element and/or universal joints )

When brakes are pressed your hear a grinding noise and squealing noise. no pulling to one side.

I had this with my front break pads specially when it rains. I had the break pads replace. Branded pads works better.

when a car is under warranty it is always best to speak to the dealer as ,with hyundai warranty,if they find something wrong hyundai pay for it....and you get ot know them a bit better(it helps)
the reason for me suggesting this is you have not descrbed the noise and what you are doing to generate this noise.......(is it a squeek,a grinding, does it stop when you brake hard/soft...etc

Breaks when pressed make a hissing noise, i have pressure on the line but no breakes?

Either the break booster is bad or there is a hole in the vacume line comming from the engine to the booster, is the hissing noise you hear comming from under the dash? if it is then the booster is bad, if its under the hood chk.the vacume line to the booster. If its a vacume leak it will idle higher than normal too.
