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!
