Default I have a 2008 Honda Accord Coupe 4 cyliner which has been squeaking really bad?

now I went to mechanic school so i can beat my way around car problems mostly the older ones but i fair by the newer ones. I cant seem to wrap my mind around why every tire is squeaking mostly the 2 front but lately the 2 back ones have been it sounds like something is rattling in there and rubbing the breaks on the rotor. I had the rotors turned so its not that. the breaks are fine. I havent done much research online on this though I just looked and someone had almost the same problem. I dont know, it sounds like the same problem but could not be. I dunno if this could be a future recall or what. maybe its the factory break pads? now, sometimes it doesnt do it. but when it does it. it does it without even hitting the breaks and even after i hit the breaks it still does it but hollows out. can someone tell me what I could possibly have done to eliminate this? i have thought about taking it back to honda and telling them about it. but as i seen in an article earlier they wont cover it under the warranty.

i can assure it isnt a sensor its something rubbing about two weeks ago the breaks were inspected AND rotors turned. I know my way around a vehicle n like i said its probably somethin only honda can diagnose

the "problem" sounds like the wear sensors on the inner brake pads are "telling" you its time to replace the pads. You have 4 wheel disc brakes so you can have the noise front and rear. typically, the brake sensors make noise when the brakes are not applied. if you just looked at the outer pads they usually look good; the wear sensors are on the inner pads and you have to have the pads taken out of the calipers to see how much material is left on the pads.

you don't give us much information to work with. what's the mileage on the car? have the brake pads ever been replaced? if so, how long ago? if they were replaced, were they replaced with the factory brake pads? If they weren't replaced with the factory pads there's a good chance the replacement pads are too hard (semi-metallic pads are too hard) and that the replacement pads are the cause of your noise. you say the rotors were turned--how long ago? why? were the pads replaced when the rotors were turned?

the more info you can give the better the chanes of your getting an actionable response.

hope that helps

Check your brake pads and your brake shoe, they could be worn already and needs replacement. Hope this helps!
