    CAN bus or not?

    In the processing of selecting LEDs for the interior of my 2011 CTS, I was confused if Cdillac uses a CAN bus system or not. CAN bus bulbs supposedly have a resistor in them to avoid false signals to the computer control system, Using can bus LEDs in a non can bus system will not work as well. My dealer parts or service folks didn't;t seem to know for some reason.

    Just got the answer form the dealer. The 2011 CTS DOES have a CAN bus system. THis should be at least put in the owner's manual to avoid service problems down the road.
