CAN Bus LED replacement bulbs can fit vehicle tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights, turn signals and side marker lights. This 1157 dual-contact, dual-function 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 BAY15D 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
  6. If your daytime running light application serves multiple purposes, this bulb will most likely not work for your vehicle.

Excellent bulb!

This is simply a fantastic LED bulb. I have it installed in my car (2004 Honda Civic LX Sedan) as the front turn signal/parking light on the driver's side (second bulb for passenger's side is in the mail) and it is extremely bright. It is replacing the white 45HP-LED 45 LED bulb which used to be the brightest bulb in this size/fitting that Super Bright Leds sold until this one came out, that I had in place previously, which I still have in the passenger's side turn signal so I can do a side-by-side comparison and for the pictures attached to this review, which show both bulbs in dim mode and bright mode. In both modes, the new W26-CBT (white version) is at least twice as bright as the 45HP, both according to the specs on the site and my own eyes, as in the 45HP put put approximately 50 lumens dim and 220 bright, and this W26 puts out approximately 100+ dim and 400+ bright. In the pictures I've attached, the W26-CBT is on the right side of the image (driver's side [US]) and it definitely is as bright or brighter than the specs say. Not only do they completely light up the housing; they also throw out enough light to light up the road up to about 20 feet where I live, and I can see the reflection when it blinks in bright mode on signs hundreds of feet, even over half a mile away. *Important Note* My car is not CAN-BUS equipped, and this is a CAN-BUS bulb, but it still works. The plug/socket is identical to the same non-CAN-BUS bulbs this site sells, but the product page says not to use it with non-CAN-BUS vehicles but it works fine with mine. Now this might be because I only have one installed and have a standard non-CAN-BUS LED Bulb in the other turn signal socket, or it might not matter at all. Either way, I'll update my review when the second bulb arrives tomorrow and say whether or not there were any problems once both CAN-BUS bulbs are installed on a non-bus vehicle. The point is, that despite the product page saying this will only work on specific vehicles, it's working fine on mine, that technically isn't in their supported vehicles list. It is also cheaper than the white 45HP, so you should definitely get this LED bulb if this site carries a size that will fit your car. Finally, it looks awesome because the PCB that the LEDS are mounted on is black and each row is separated by these tiny heatsinks that run the length of the bulb. Get this bulb! A+++

Too bright

Kinda unfair for me to give it 3 stars for being too bright, but I wanted to use this bulb for my CANbus motorcycle tail/brake light. Too bright for that. Looks like my brakes are on all the time. Then when I hit the brakes, the step-up to the higher intensity level is not that noticeable. For me anyway, this bulb would be better if fewer of the SMD's were "always on". That would make the running light appear closer to a regular 1157 in intensity, and would make the brightness step-up to the brake light a bigger more noticeable jump.

Now, if you have smoked out lenses or something like that then these should work great!

Installed in a '98 GS500E

I have a GS500E with a GSF style red tail lens. I bought the cool white bulbs because the bottom side of the tail lens is clear to allow the light to shine down onto the license plate. Even though these bulbs are super bright (of course, brighter than stock) they don't wash out the red color of the lens. I am super happy with these and hope they last a long long time. I've attached pictures which show the LED bulb on the left side of the tail light and a stock bulb on the right for comparison. First pic is without brakes applied and the second is with the brakes on.

Best LED out there .
Used it for front turn signals on my Harley .
The fact it is CANbus has had no effect and they work just fine for me .
I attached a pic capturing the bulbs in regular running light and turn signal so you can see the split .

Great! Tried 1, just bought more.

1973 Chevy Nova, Tail/Brake Light.
1157 Red LED vs 1157 incandescent.
LED Light is more evenly distributed compared to incandescent.
Led light is more evenly red, incandescent has whiter hot spot in middle.
LED light appears brighter than incandescent during brake light and running light mode viewed at 50 feet and 150 feet.
Led light is much faster to go into full brightness so appears brighter in turn signal or hazard flasher mode, full on and off vs incandescent lamp ramping up and down in brightness.
LED and incandescent turn signal flashing speed the same using a Tridon/Stant EL12 flasher. (did not buy this special just happened to have it already installed in car, do not know what will happen with standard 552/556 flasher)
Tail light housing feels much cooler compared to incandescent bulb.
