I had the brakes replaced little more than a year ago. Lately when you brake (more so when you put harder pressure on the brakes, not so much during light braking)you hear a rubbing noise from front of car. The brakes work fine, there is no fear of not stopping from that noise, but, what are the potential causes?

Almost immediately following a tire rotation and balance, vehicle received DSC FAULT, ABS FAULT, TRANSMISSION FAULT, AIR SUSPENSION FAULT, AND VEHICLE TOO LOW MESSAGES.

A few more facts I feel are important: my battery light came on appox. 5-6 wks following the installment of an isimple (audio AUX outlet) which just so happened to be the day I was on way to the auto shop for the tire service. AutoZone diagnostics code read, "Transmission Electrical". Withthat said Tranny does shift somewhat ruff and once (months ago shifted so hard it felt like we were rear-ended (The Rear-Ended Shift Has Only Happened Once).
We changed the head and cams. The motor is now running rough and the #1 spark plug is wet. we dont have the correct voltage at the cam sensor and the cooling fan dont turn off.
The panel had a few cracks when i bought the car two years ago, and had some repairs done then. Now it's much worse and getting moreso.
Stopped immediately coolant full.
