use resistors before the leds to lower the current. that should stop them blowing.

i dont know what volts/amps you are running so i cant give you an exact resistor ohms value

then just chuck a higher value resistor in it.

what value are you running at the moment?

check your wiring to make sure there's nothing shorting out 8-)

Lucky you've got mr ex Jaycar here, ok, depending on what values your LED is, the formula is as follows,

R= (VS-VL) / I

What does that mean?
ok
R is the value of your resistor required in ohms
VS is supply voltage, as in your battery
VL is the nominal voltage that your LED requires
I is the required current for the LED

only thing to note, for the optimum brightness, measure the voltage at the point where you want to place the LED, as the car's electrical system is 13.8 or so, give or take your 2 metres of cable, and i dont imagine they would be very thick, there will be abit of voltage drop, goodluck man, oh, show us piccys too, cya :D
