If sound also goes away when throttle is released and sound returns when throttle is pressed down, then you have engine noise from car engine electronics. In older cars, this was quite noticeable when the cars had distributor caps. The electrical noise caused by arcing required for the spark plugs could be your issue. It is resolved with a noise filter which gets wired inline leading to your in-dash deck and power amp (if you have one). The filter can be found many places including Radio Shack and Crutchfield.com. First find your total wattage draw for each component of the sound system (deck and amplifier), then divide by 12 to get current draw through filter. Purchase that size filter or larger.

    no. no damage to either sub or amp, just annoying. the filter should cost about 15 USD, depending on your location and filter size.

2008 Element. Runs like a charm, just had its BIG tuneup done this spring (tires, timing belt, etc). Makes a VERY intermittent high-pitched whine. Doesn't seem connected to anything-not just when cold,...


still bad? doing old zero answer posts. (my bag)
finding noise is hard, and takes skills and can be dangerous.
my guess ????? it makes noise only moving.????
only clue is front, and presume outside of car and not under dash.

if car makes noise moving only, it can be dangerous , driving or even trouble shooting.
does it make noise in turns, or bumps,or loads (hills) or in all gears. or down hill, or coasting.?????
when it starts, does letting of throttle stop it, or more throttle>
or down shifting.? or cutting throttle and shifting to neutral.
I added many check to Doesn't seem connected to anything

my guess is the whine will progress to full time, many times this is true.

good FSM cover noise, here is more.

I'm actually having a couple of problems with my 2002 buick century. The first of which is whenever I am driving my car there is a high pitched spuealing noise coming what seems to be the front passenger...


Good Evening. First off I would like to give you a little advice on your passenger side windshield wiper. On your windshield wipers there is a nut at the base of the arm, try tightening that nut down (of course while your wipers are off) and that should make it work going off the description of your wiper problem. Your Antilock and trac off are lights that are tied into your antilock brake system and will both come on together. Your high pitched squeal could be a few things like brake pads, or a backing plate rubbing. Your hub assembly really won't make a squeal but would be a good reason for the anti lock light to be on. Your best bet is to have the antilock system scanned for codes to know exactly what is making the system to pass a code. Any other questions please feel free to ask. Hope this helps.

High pitched noise comin out the sub


You may have a ground loop issue. Make sure your ground lead is as short as possible (<1ft, if possible) and that it is mounted to a nice, clean (unpainted) spot on the vehicle. If you have multiple amps, try and ground them to the same point.
