The tortoise motor acts like a resistor in this case with the (bicolor) LED in series with it.

Isn’t a resistor needed to knock down the 12 volts given the LED’s show voltage of 2 – 25 V?
Am I missing something here?

I put a two lead red/green 3mm, two lead LED in series with one tortoise lead. The tortoise draws almost 20 ma. at stall. Most LED’s are needed. No resistors needed.
