CAN Bus LED replacement bulbs can fit vehicle tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights, turn signals or side marker lights. This 1156 single-contact bulb has 26 LEDs (5050 SMD) that create a 360° viewing angle for better, allover light emission with reduced hot spots. Error-free LED bulbs are designed to communicate with your vehicle's CAN Bus computer system and prevent error messages. Tower-style design with a BA15S 15-mm bayonet base for easy plug-and-play installation—just twist to lock in place. The energy-efficient bulb has 12V DC operation and is designed to last 30,000 hours on your car, truck, SUV, or van—25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Available in cool white, amber and red. Not sold in pairs. Price per bulb.

Important Notes - Please read before purchasing:
  1. Your vehicle may require an LED compatible Flasher or Load Resistor. LED brake/tail lamps will not flash with most stock flasher units due to their extremely low current draw. Try our Vehicle LED Bulb Finder to find a compatible flasher for your vehicle. Please See More LED Car Bulb Notes
  2. The supervision resistor built into CAN bus bulbs are not intended to fix turn signal related issues, such as hyperflashing. Please See More CAN Bus Bulb Notes
  3. CAN Bus bulbs should work with most cars that have computers that notify you if a light bulb is burned out. However, some vehicles still might have issues - due to the unique electrical systems in these types of vehicles. Please See More CAN Bus Bulb Notes
  4. Oversize
  5. For best results the LED color should be the same as the lens color. If bulb is behind a clear lens, use the appropriate color for turn and brake light functions. Please See More LED Car Bulb Notes

Plug & Play on a VW Jetta, No fast blinker!

Got these to complete my MY2009 Jetta's total LED overhaul. Response time is awesome and threw no canbus errors. No fast blinker either. No re-programing required and were relatively easy to install.

Great bright color matches my other amber LEDs and are MUCH brighter than the stock incandescents. As always, super snappy response time of LED is very impressive and I'm so happy that I'll never have to replace these. Great investment and no unnecessary pull-overs by the cops!

Worked great but...

they did not solve the hyper-flashing problem. I read somewhere that the CAN Bus bulbs fixed that problem. I ended up returning them because I was too lazy to install load resistors or an electronic flasher. They were not quite as bright as my stock bulbs, but definitely bright enough for daytime visibility. Plan on installing load resistors or an electronic flasher, but once you do that you will be satisfied with these bulbs!

Response from Super Bright LEDs:

Josh the CAN Bus bulbs are only intended to stop system error messages. They do not draw enough current to stop hyper flashing. Any of our bulbs used as a turn signal will require the flasher relay to be swapped out for one that is LED compatible or installation of load resistors.

The best 1156 lamp!

I purchased a pair of these bulbs as replacements for the OEM Incandescent bulbs in my John Deere lawn tractor. The difference is DRAMATIC. The originals were a pale yellow which broadcast light only a few feet in front of my tractor. These lamps blast a clean white light over 15 feet ahead of my tractor. They also use very little electricity. A truly great lamp!

Fitted to a Mercedes Benz 230SLK

Even though I have no time on the bulb I thought I'd give an initial review. I bought the can-bus lamp thinking it would work without load resistors. No such luck. I used the chat feature and had Gary as my tech. He said that some cars do not work with the can-bus lamps and that I should try a load resistor across the leads. He said a 25 ohm should do the trick. I ordered them and received them in 3 days. Just installed the first one and works like a charm! Very bright lamp. This is a great company to work with and I'm telling my friends!!

Work GREAT On 2012 W204 C63AMG For Brake & Reverse

I bought the 1156-R26-CBT AND the 1156-W26-CBT which are the CANBUS Red and White 26 LED 5050-SMD bulbs to be installed for brake and reverse light bulb replacements and I was VERY pleasantly surprised that these did NOT throw ANY bulb out errors on my 2012 W204 C63AMG Sedan with the lighting package! I would HIGHLY recommend the use of these as they are SUPER bright and fill the reflector lenses REALLY well. I did NOT need to use any load resistors e.t.c. These are TRULY just plug n' play! Also, if you have a choice between the 5050 26 LED and 3528-SMD 60 LED bulbs, DEFINITELY go with the 5050-SMD LEDs as they are WAY brighter due to the larger surface area on each LED emitter.
