Hello my name is ***** ***** the whining noise sound like a wheel bearing type noise?

Expert:  Scott W. replied 7 months ago.

From your description it sounds like a wheel bearing that may becoming loose and now the ABS sensor and ring readings are becoming erratic and throwing the codes and turning the lights on. If you have a scan tool see what codes are stored, or jack the wheels off the ground and check for any play in the bearings.
