AW: [DML] LED Rear Light Replacment...

we were talking about how to solve that problem with the LED 
brake-lights and cruise control problem. Instead of the extra relay I said 
try a resistor in parallel to the LEDs to pull the level down so that the
cruise control ECU can see a real low level, because only with LEDs
installed and resistors in series the level might stay too high.

Your completely wrong here. Electronics repair is one of the things I do
for a living.  Resistors limit voltage and current, not increase it.
The higher the resistance, the less current flow the resistor allows.
For instance. a 1k ohm resistor at 12 volts will only pass 12mA of current.
