uh just to clarify, its easier to use the ready fit leds , but yes u can use a led and resistor no worrys so long as you know what your doing. you need to drop the 13.8V line to about 3V so you need a resistor to dissipate 10.8V and then u can work out current thru it to get the value of the resistor :D problem solved, i used this method for my door handle leds.
