Can any one tell me if my 2016 Terrain SLE 2 with the V6 is a can-bus system or not? I want to change all my interior bulbs to led. I want to make sure before I get the right bulbs if it's can-bus or not.

It should be like our 2015 Equinox was.
You should only need "CANBUS" (error free) LED lights for the front two upper console lights.
The center and rear dome lights can be plain old LED bulbs.
The "CANBUS" bulbs will have some small resistors on them. . . . the others will not.
I will post a few to give you a visual example like the ones I bought off Amazon or Ebay in a few minutes so check back here. . .

Every GM vehicle since 2008 is Canbus for sure. Maybe even earlier. Some brands may act ''wonky'' even if they say canbus.

I've had fairly good luck with these from Amazon. License plate usage is the big test. It's all Chinese junk anyway.

Thanks for posting those. . . . good lights for the money and spares to boot.
I had them saved in my Amazon lists and had too many things to do yesterday and forgot to post back.
They are not too large like some others that might not fit and very bright.

I don’t believe there’s any direct connection between CANBUS and any light bulb in an automobile except that the Controller responsible for energizing its output to illuminate that lightbulb may get a message from another Controller telling it to do so.

So I’m not sure why CANBUS is even mentioned in the same breadth as a lightbulb ... even if they come with attached resistors. That has nothing directly to do with CANBUS.

I don’t know. Maybe what he actually wants is cannabis bulbs.

I could use a few myself, actually...
