Chirping noise when driving??

Hey everyone. I have an issue and I wanted to see if anyone else has encountered the same thing. When driving and going over bumps or dips in the road I tend to hear a chirping noise in the front passenger side. It only happens when driving consistently on bad roads with bumps and dips. I also hear the same noise after having really loud music on. Could it be a speaker etc? Thanks.

Have you checked the glove box for a bird?


Sorry, I'll go away. I just couldn't resist.

Nah it's not a squeak. I know it sounds dumb but it really does chirp. It's so annoying sometimes. I'm trying to figure out somewhere to start before I bring it in.

it still may be the window rubbing on your weather striping..i have a nisan pathfinder that chirpped like crazy from the front of the hood....drove me nuts..it turned out to be where the hood latches it was metal on metal..i put some grease on the hood latch..problem solved ..this may be happening where you door latches...

I've had bizarre sounds from the heater vents. Try moving them around.

I also get chirping sounds, when I shift gears. I can't seem to locate the source of the problem though

The chirping I get in my car comes from my heater vents, its very annoying but I don't know if that's what you have since yours only comes when you hit bumps an whatnot

On a serious note, it could be the blower motor for the hvac. Have heard of a few going bad.

Mine does this whenever I turn the fan on. It's been on my list to take in for warranty work.

Sounds like you are hitting second gear to hard. Let up off the clutch easier for a smoother shift and easy on the throttle. I sometimes also experience the "chirping" sound when I don't follow the above rules.

OP has an automatic, or should if I'm remembering my MY12 trims correctly.

You said it also happens when you play your Radio loud. With the Car off and the Radio on, Go to the Radio Knobs, Select Fader and Balance, adjust your Speaker Volume (with the Radio a little Loud) from left front ,then slowly decrease the Volume from the left speaker while increasing volume to the right front speaker, and see if you hear that noise, if not this will eliminate the speakers.

I talked to someone I work with today at the shop. It possible I have a blown speaker and the magnet is moving around when I'm driving. Something like that etc.
