In my experiences with these problems it is either your brakes if it is only when your moving or if the squeaking is there at an idle stop, it is possible that your belt is "drying" out and a simple fix would be to spray any type of lubricant or some soapy water on the belt. Either will fix the squeaking. And if it is your brakes it could be a number of things like rotors, pads, bearings, or even low brake fluid. the noise is probably there all the time, but just cant hear it moving at higher speeds. try a complete chassis lube to remove squeaks if it is a belt it is more likely to be a squeal not a squeak. my car is having this same issue. the squeak sounds like its 1 time per tire rotation and it fades away with more speed. now i just need to find a guide on checking break system apparently...thanks for your great troubleshooting tips!

Sounds like a brake wear indicator. If it changes while braking then it is. Recommend a brake inspection.

Dirty brake pads could cause a car to make a squeaking noise when putting the car in gear or when releasing the brakes. Cleaning, sanding, or replacing the brake pads should make the sound stop.

This happened to me when i was installing a new one. Check ALL of the fuses under the hood and the under the driver side panel near where your left foot would go when driving

my guess would be to have your brakes checked... or maybe you are dragging something...

IF it is Turbo charged then that would be the turbo.

Sound does travel under water otherwise the Humpback would be wasting its time singing!

this is usually the indicator that you need new brakes so dont worry just get them replaced problem solved

sound is not louder in water because of the water that is in your ears and the sound would be very faint.

Most people will tap the brakes of a car when their car is going downhill, usually to keep the car under the speed limit. The squeaking noise could be the brake rotors or the brake pads.Ê

If that's where your fuse panel is, it's probably related to a fuse. Either way, check all of your lights (including brakes) and see if the squeaking stops, changes, etc.

lubricate your serpentine belt with some belt grease or some WD-40 and see if it doesn't stop.

No. That would be "Careless and Reckless". DUI is "Driving Under the Influence".

Start with serpentine belt, then belt tensioner or pulleys, maybe water pump or cam shaft distributor
