I have a Honda CR-V that just began to squeak when the vehicle is moving. The squeaking is consistent with the moving of the wheels. There is no sound when the wheels are stopped.

    The brake pads on the CRV have a little metal finger attached to the brake pads. When the brake pad wear down the sensor contacts the brake disc and as the wheel rotates it emits that annoying squeal so you get your brakes serviced before serious damage occurs.
