All LED's require resistors to run on 12v. However, most led retrofit bulbs have the resistor built in. If you plan on connecting raw LEDs, you'll need to add them yourself or you'll hear a nice fizzle and pop as the top of the led explodes. Lol

Also, the ENTIRE electrical system runs on 13.6-14.3 volts while running. If you only see 12v somewhere there is a problem. Fyi
