I was wondering if I need to use Cambus compatible bulbs for the running lights, reverse, turn signals, etc. I was going to pick them up at Superbright LEDs, but they don't have a cambus red 3157. My wife's 2007 jeep allowed non cambus bulbs for the reverse lights, but needed them for turn/ brake/ running lights.

I'm doing the dome light too, when I did my escort with the same LED upgrade, it was many times brighter with the LED.

Check out Headlight Revolution for high quality bulbs and great customer service. I have a ordered a few items from them and been very happy.

I'm not aware of the newer vans using canbus error detection. You might have to change the flashing module if you get a rapid flash with turn signals.

On a 2017 it goes through the BCM so there is no separate flasher.

Using the BCM makes me think hyperflashing won't be an issue if I use LEDS for the turn signal.

You will have issues.

On modern GMs you will get 3 normal blinks while the BCM measures the current (or monitors the feedback signal if you have integrated LED headlights on trucks, cars, etc) and then it will detect a problem and flash rapidly after the three normal blinks.
