    I'm hearing a squeacky sound randomly while driving the car. It sounds as if someone's rubbing steal against steal.
    The sound comes and goes and isn't necessarily made worse or better when I apply the brakes

      The front brake pads might be wearing out or the backing plate of the rotors touching.

      Very unusual for brakes to go bad in 25K. It although could be the factory disk pads wear sensor you are hearing, front brakes do wear out sooner than rear as a rule because they take the brunt of the stopping action. Ask around to see if anyone recommends a good brake mechanic to check them out would be my suggestion.

      if the squeacky stops when you appliy the breaks and it come back after you let off,your brakes need replaceing
      7/27/2012 Bill
      As I was saying, have a qualified mechanic check it out or remove the front tires and check the pad thickness, pads should be at least a 1/4 inch in thickness. If you do a lot of quick stops the front pads most likely are the culprit. Don't let this linger on too long before you do something otherwise you could be looking at scaring/scratching the rotors if this is the problem.

      Ususlly, this is the brake wear indicator - built into the disc brake pads. They have a small piece of metal that makes contact with the brake rotor when the brakes are not applied - to indicate time to change the disc brake pads; indicating thin friction material.
      Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for more specific detail to inspect the brake pads and rotors.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts.

    Does my car have brake discs and rotors on all 4 wheels?
    If I have "warped rotors" , does that mean I need rotors and discs replaced on all 4 wheels?

      Usually the warped rotors are replaced in pairs - if one of the front rotors are warped, then both front rotors would be replaced.
      Your vehicle has four wheel disc brakes. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For exmple, they (Rock Auto) list the disc brake rotors for around $23.00 for your vehicle. Be sure to also replace the rotor grease (hub) seals with the new rotors.

      sounds like you have air in your break lines, it u can build up pressure when pumping the brake, its a classic sign of air in the lines. try bleeding the air out.

      Several possibilities; worn brake pads (replace brake pads with new), worn / faulty brake rotors (replace with new). Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to inspect and repair the front disc brakes.

      Please check the Tire Aliignment and also the Wheel Bearings. any Signs of Wear in the Inner tyre could be a Alignment prolem, If it is a Squeling or humming it could be the wheel bearings.

      Is it a highmount brake lite?
      6/24/2012 anna
      thank you. how do it it is still not working. what else should i do?
      6/24/2012 anna
      i bought a new bulb 7440 but it is still not working?
      6/24/2012 jdl
      If it is the highmount brake lite, get at the wiring and check voltage and ground. The ground wire is black, the other color wire is voltage. Should be voltage when you step on the brake. I can't tell much without looking at it. You have to do the testing.
