RE: Window Switch - More?

The current through the led will be reduced with the resister  "before or 
after",  however if you take the time to measure the current before 
installing the led you might be able to add resistance to further lower the 
current.( and make it last much longer)  a led will work with .020 amps and 
even lower( but brightness will begin to diminish)
