So I posted about this issue. I brought car to mechanic they changed both front hub assemblies. When I picked up car the noise was gone but within a few miles all 3 lights came back on! And the abs started making a random humming noise periodically. I dropped the car off again this morning and they said they tried a "different" kind of bearings? Being It cost my almost $500. Would like to know thoughts on this. Am I getting the run around. I've dont my own research and came up with possible wiring harness assembly? Here is my original post
I recently changed the brake pads on my wifes 2003 Alero. Easiest I've ever done! However after this the TRAC OFF, ABS, and SERVICE VEHICLE SOON lights are coming on (not always immediately) also the car is making a humming noise, airplane like I guess. It stops when I turn right. I was thinking wheel bearing, so I jacked car up checked for play (none) took everything apart again but still humming. I don't see how pad slapping it could contribute to this but find the timing off it odd. Also I just put the lug nuts on the wheel barely then set car down to tighten so wheel wouldn't spin. Could that be problem? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated before I go to a mechanic and have to buy through problem after problem. Can't really afford that with first child in the way. But need car safe for same reason.
