Probably that check point for your pads. They are designed that way to alert you to the pads needing changed.

Most likely that's what is going on.

Does the noise go away when you press on the brakes??? If so it might just be noisy pads (high metal content). if it doesn't go away it might not be the brakes at all. One common problem if you wheel in mud and water is the front double cardon (CV)joint on the front drive shaft. If it get muddy or dry (no grease) it can sound like a bird singing as you drive down the road. If you heard this noise for the first time its a bit hard to locate, sometimes it doesn't happen until your doing 20-30mph. let me know what the answer is to the question above and we can go from there.

I think it does go away when i press on the brakes. The only time i have been in mud was like 6 months ago or even more, if they are my brake how can i make it go away and if its not my brakes what kind of grease do i need.

Thank you for your help.

On a clear street pull the hand brake just enough to engage the rear brakes.. does this make the noise go away?

Well you might want to check two things. If they told you that your hub bearing wasn't on right then you might want to check the bolts on the back of the knuckle that hold them in. They are in kind of a triangle. Second I would take your calipers off and pop the pads out then reset the piston and re-install it all.

One other thing that could be happening? When you had your pads changed did they turn the rotors also? If not then the noise you are hearing could be from even pads and uneven rotors contacting each other when the brakes aren't in use.

1BLKJP, When i had my pads changed they also had to resurface the rotors cause they were wraped. Do you think they didnt do it right.

Well that is always a possibility I guess. There's only so many things that are going to cause squeaking out of your brakes. I was just trying to think thru the easy ones.

Check the rear pads maybe they are worn down to the squealer.
