      Several possibilities; faulty / collapsed flexible front brake hose, contaminated / dirty brake fluid, frozen / sticking caliper piston.

      First step - remove all the old brake fluid in the system, then replace both of the flexible front brake hoses - each caliper left and right sides. Then, replace / refill the brake fluid in the system with new fluid. Bleed the system to remove all residual air.

      Check these various on-line vendors;,,, to list only a few.
      The front flexible brake hoses (left and right) will cost around $10.00 to around $16.00 each for your vehicle.

    Noise from wheel as i increase speed?
    i have a 99 accord and when i reach speeds of at least 40 mph i hear an auidible humming sound that gets louder as i increase my speed my car is not shaking and i do not notice any loss in performance
    • John's Auto Repair
      Is the noise generating from the steering wheel or one of the driving wheels? If it's coming
      from one of the driving wheels, you may have a bad hub bearing. Let me know.

      Noting changes as I steer and I wouldn't know how to pinpoint exactly where it's coking from but I'm sure it's from my actual wheel as it spins
    • John's Auto Repair
      If the noise is louder when turning left, then it's the right wheel. The
      same is true when turning right. Then the bearing on the left could
      be bad

      If you have drum brakes in the rear then you may have brake fluid leaking from the wheel cylinders and
      saturating the brake shoes and causing them to grab and lock the brakes up. So you would need to
      have the rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders replaced. As far as a price, check in the "estimate cost"
      section on this website.

      I'd have your charging system and battery tested and cables. I believe some of the national brand auto stores will check those systems for free. If the problem is a short it could be anywhere. I can't think of what may be located in your center console, maybe shift interlock?
