Swapping bulbs for LED's??

I went to radioshack and bought some 3mm red led's. I removed the cruise control bulbs and the sunroof switch bulb. I then removed the actual bulb from the small plastic piece and switched in the LED's....they dont work. i rotated, tested...tried everything and they wont light up.

Anyone have any knowledge of LED's????

Yes you can, Circuit board, wafer board, really any non-conductive material that will last in the temperature and vibration extremeties of a car.

Here is a link to a sill little project I did for some friends that wanted colored lights in their foot well.
