mitchv >> it is late, I am a bit into the spirits, but I will try to help as you say you don't have a lot of experience with electrical. OK. HEre goes. If your measuring 2.7 volts, then your not measuring to ground. OR, your measuring AFTER or between to bulbs. A bulb or LED 'drops' voltage across it. So you just have the wrong points your measuring from. OR >> you have the meter set up wrong (hey! it happens). It is useful to think of voltage/current as 'potential'. you have a known potential of ~12v from your battery. You just need to I.D. that 1st (your source voltage), then work you way towards your lamps. REMEMBER!!! Do not assume a 'ground' is always true. Especially in a car. Our focus (like all modern cars) have some 'switched' grounds.
Hope that helps a bit. (Errrp!)
