How do i connect 2 led bulbs for the car alram warning light instead of one? Can i just directly tap both of them to the 12 volt negative and positive wire from the old LEd bulb? or do i have to use a resistor is there anyway i can  get 2 led bulbs to light up without resistor? i have tried connecting 2 bulb to the old led wires but only one of them lights up. also they were two differnt led bulbs..would it work if i have gotten to of the same kind? please help me out !!!!

if youre alarm wont handle 2 led's in parallel just wire them up in series.....you have 2 wires comming from  the alarm one positive and one negative for the LED, lets just call them red and black...could be something different depends on the alarm

Red from alarm to red on LED, Black on LED to RED on other LED, BLACK on second LED to BLACK on alarm
