3157 LED Bulb - Dual Function 45 SMD LED Tower - Wedge Retrofit
- Not sold in pairs, price per bulb.
- Please select options for quantity discount information
|For discount information or inquiring about larger quantity pricing, click here|
- 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
- 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
- If your daytime running light application serves multiple purposes, this bulb will most likely not work for your vehicle.
LED replacement bulbs can fit vehicle tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights, turn signals or side marker lights. This 3157 dual-contact, dual-function bulb has 45 LEDs (3528 SMD) that create a 360° viewing angle for better, allover light emission with reduced hot spots. Tower-style design with a 16-mm wedge base for easy plug-and-play installation. The energy-efficient bulb operates within a wide 9-14.8V DC range 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.

1. CAN Bus LED bulbs are simple plug-and- play LED bulbs which are made specifically for CAN Bus-equipped vehicles. These bulbs work with your vehicle's advanced computer system, so when your vehicle's computer reads them, they respond back correctly.
To see if your vehicle operates with a CAN Bus system, simply remove the bulb you're looking to replace, start your vehicle, and if you have a "Bulb Out" message on your dash you have a CAN Bus system.
|Part NO||CCT / Wavelength |
CCT is used to express the color or shade of white light. The Correlated Color Temperature is the measure of the color appearance of the light emitted from a light source, measured in degrees kelvin (K). The CCT rating is a general 'warmth' or 'coolness' measure of its appearance. Wavelength is used to express a specific color of light other than whites. Wavelength is the portion of the visible spectrum that the human eye can detect, between 380 and 700 nanometers (nm). When trying to match an existing bulb color choose a replacement that most closely matches the CCT or wavelength of the original.
|MCD per LED||Intensity per LED||Polarity Sensitive||Brightness||Millicandela |
Millicandela is a unit of measurement for the light output of LEDs. Candela is one of the seven base units of the International System of Units. It is a unit of Luminous Intensity (I), or Light Power per Steradian (SR), while steradian is a unit of 3D cone angle with which the projected area of 1 steradian over a sphere with a 1m radius, is 1 square meter. One thousand millicandela equals one candela or approximately one candle power.
|Beam Angle |
Beam angle is used to express the width of the light emitting from the source. The narrower the beam angle the more focused the light energy is. Comparing two 40 watt lights one with a beam angle of 30(a) and another with a beam angle of 90(b), They both produce the same amount of light output but (a) will appear brighter in the beam angle compared to (b) at the sacrifice of light spread.
|Current Draw @ Operating Voltage |
Current Draw is used to size fuses and wire for a circuit. Current draw is the amount of energy consumed by an LED or LEDs in an electrical circuit at a specific voltage, measured in amps (A) or milliamps (mA).

2000 Mustang GT
These red LED bulbs definitely are brighter than the stock filament bulbs. Okay, the filament bulbs are 13 years old at this point. The Mustang takes 3 bulbs on each side, and you'll need at least one resistor. I have a sequential light kit installed, and I suppressed the fast-flash by installing one resistor on the wire for the first bulb in the flash sequence.
Nice and bright
Very happy with these bulbs so far. Equal brightness, if not a little brighter than OEM bulb. LED fills the light cavity better and you can't beat the coolness factor. You will need resistors to prevent hyper flashing.
2012 Dodge Ram 1500
Great product, You need a Resistor to avoid messages on the dash and for the fast turn signal. It's much brighter than OEM bulb (my opinion).
I would recommend it.
I had an LED tower previously that was way too dim. Almost impossible to see during the day, so I switched back to stock light bulbs. When these came in it was immediately obvious that they were brighter than even the stock bulbs. The contrast between running lights and brake lights is more noticeable as well.
Excellent Light 1998 Dodge Ram 1500
If you're going to use the red or amber lights as rear facing indicator lamps or stop lamps then these lights are perfect. The red lights are very bright and and fill out the entire housing. However I found that the amber lights were quite a bit dimmer than the red ones. And in a forward facing application like my truck the amber lights were no where near bright enough to be seen during the day.
Thank you for taking the time to send us a review. Customer feedback is very important to us. We are happy to hear that the 3157-R45-T bulbs worked so well for you. Sorry that the amber bulbs 360 degree beam angle wasn't a good fit for your current housing. They should do much better in a more open housing where the light from the sides is visible.
Brighter and Faster than Regular Bulbs!
I bought a couple of these to try out in my 2004 Silverado. To my surprise, they seem brighter than the regular bulbs in both the brake light location and the rear turn signal location. I didn't buy the load resisters, because I also wanted to reduce my current pull. For my truck, I didn't need them for the brake lights, but the turn signal got noticeably faster. I kept them in the brake light location and ordered another set (with resisters) for the rear turn signals. The turn signal cycle time with the resister is the same as with regular bulbs, but these LEDs come to full brightness almost instantly! I'll be buying more in other spots, but need to measure first to make sure they fit.
I have a 1996 GT with sequential lights. Wanted an LED upgrade. To make a long story short I bought a LED conversion kit from the manufacturer of my sequential kit. Their 19 SMD bulbs suck. No brighter than incandescent and when going from running light to signal almost no change in brightness so you lose the sequential effect. Bought the Super bright bulbs above and that fixed everything! They are brighter than the old LEDs and no issues between the 2 intensities so you easily notice the difference with turn signals. I won't get LEDs anywhere else!
Great, Very Bright (2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee)
This is a review for the red LED. It was very bright light and especially at night. Easy to install. Becomes brighter when you hit the breaks then back to normal light output when driving again. Would recommend.
Equal of Altima's OEM Bulb
I installed these as tail/stop lights on a 2010 Altima 2.5 S.
I compared the LED side-by-side with the OEM bulb. The LED is just about as bright as the OEM as a tail light but slightly brighter as a stop light. The geometery of the reflector surface, which I guess is optimized for the filament position of an OEM bulb, definitely affects the rearward brightness of the LED. Standing behind the car, you can see that the reflector is not completely illuminated with the LED but is with the OEM bulb. In spite of this, the light output of the LED is about equal to the OEM bulb.
Anyway, I'm satisfied. Given the hassle of pulling the Altima's rear light housing, having long-life LEDs in there will save me time and effort in the end. Now to get some turn signal and back-up LEDs.
