The bulb that I currently used is similar to the stock bulb for the break light (with a blue coating). The bulb with 2 sets of wires inside (one for parking, one for break applied). I need an LED with dual light (one for parking and one for when break is applied). Any ideas?

What is the number of the regular bulb used? Sounds like it would be a standard 1157 or 2157 dual filament bulb. These have 3 contacts on the bottom. Surely the make an LED equivalent for those.
