what causes it to squeal while backing up and im not touching the brakes.
The parking brake might be hanging up, or the rotors are rusty. Is this first thing in the morning and it goes away?
No its all the time
Parking brake could be hanging up or you brake pads could be worn and not immediately releasing all the way after you lift your foot off the brake pedal.
