Please help determine MAX running light wattage

Hi all. As you can see in my sig, I have a 2004 19" Bambi. I am needing to determine the total wattage of all running lights, including the LED taillights.

I have taken the bulbs out of one of the marker lights, and there was no wattage rating stamped on them. The manual states that the bulb type is a #67 for all marker lights, including the license plate light. I haven't found much information regarding their wattage. I am assuming 5 or 10 watts.

There are 12 total clearance/marker lights, including license plate.

Also, does anyone happen to know what the CCD oval LED tail lamps draw?

do you own a ohm meter?

we can do this the easy way.

John, I do own one. Two actually. I'll be the first to admit that I know nothing about measuring current, but you seem more than qualified (from what I've heard).

Thanks.

The bulbs should draw about 11 watts. and the LEDs draw a LOT less. Almost, but not quite, nothing. A single LED can run for 12 hours on a single 1.5v AA battery.

11 watts each would be a good ballpark figure, it will not include the wiring.

if you like, zero your ohm meter and read the resistance of the circuit in question to ground and report back.

you can check this right at the plug.
