One of the boot lights was filled with water so took it off to drain and to try and reseal it. Measured voltage on LEDs while I was in there and they run at 1V when tail lights are on and 1.7V for brake light so need 1.8-2V LEDs. I did not have time to unsolder one and test the current. I see there was 5V mentioned before but using 5V LEDs they would be very dim.
