Re: High pitched noise from wheel while driving

Re: High pitched noise from wheel while driving

I did jack up the car, no play in the wheel top to bottom.

Try another key to eliminate it being the chip inside. Maybe someone did a starter install and added a bypass. Then removed it....partially....before selling it to you.
