CAN Bus LED replacement bulbs can fit vehicle tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights, turn signals or side marker lights. This 3156 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 16-mm wedge base for easy plug-and-play installation. 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

brighter backup lites on less power

on my 2001 Chevy Lumina "smoothtop"

switched out my 3156 incandecent bulbs to these in cool white -- VERY happy w the results!

my backups [ reverse lites ] can also be activated w a console mounted switch as they include several LED strobes and LED lite panels mounted on the trailer hitch and under the rear sides for scene illumination and warning -- I'd noticed a reluctance of some of the strobes to flash w proper intensity & speed and figured [ even tho the fuse didn't blow ] that the backup circut was overloaded a leetil -- so, I ordered these, changed em out, and *now* the strobes flash proper like and the actual *backup* lites are much brighter

Replace the back up bulb on my F-350 Super Duty

Replaced the 3156 back up bulbs on my 2001 F-350 Super Duty. The old bulbs drew 2 amps each. These new bulbs draw only .5 amps and are 4 times as bright. I mean seriously BRIGHT. Just barely fit, the new bulbs are longer.
Great service and got the bulbs in two days to Colorado.

Put these in my 2002 F150, replacing the standated backup bulbs. They fit, but barely - and you'll need to be careful when installing them for this reason. The difference in brightness and intensity however, is unbelievable.

Problem Installing

The Electrical connection pins on the base of the bulb were superimposed.(Opposite of the existing 3156 bulb) I had to carefully straighten them and bend them the opposite way to make contact with the socket terminals.Also the black plastic base of the bulb was to big to fit through the hole in the fixture bezel. I filed the hole to fit the bulb.(Minimal amount) The bulb was quite bright and works great other than the two glitches I noted!

I Can Finally See

Couldn't see anything on the rear camera at night. With these installed on my 2006 F150, I can see everything! Some the reviews said the fit was tight but they installed just fine on my truck.
