Will a 3157 LED Bulb work with a 3156 socket?

What color are LED turn signal bulbs?

LED turn signal bulbs are typically bright amber, and LED Switchback Bulbs “switch back” from bright white to amber when the turn signal is used. A pure, bright white illumination for parking lights and a rich amber color are a popular upgrade over the factory or stock incandescent bulbs. Traditional incandescent bulbs tend to appear very dull, dim, and don’t last nearly as long as the energy-efficient LED version.

Are brake lights and tail light the same bulb?

In short, it is the same bulb that performs two separate functions on your vehicle. This single bulb has two filaments, one for parking which is dimmer, and the other for brake which will be brighter. You may notice that from time to time, one will be working when the other is not. This further goes to show the difference between the two filaments of the bulb. However, both are essential for safety and need to be in good working order.

Do LED turn signal Bulbs need a load resistor?

Yes, you will need a load resistor for each LED bulb that you install on a turn signal circuit.
