1. Take it as a lesson, if you buy electronics on ebay, most of the time you are on your own.
2. What were you intending to do? Have some lights you can turn on with a remote switch? Is this a real car or model car you are talking about?
3. Look up "LED calculator" to input specs and figure out a wiring diagram.

The LED's he posted are 12v, the resistor is already installed.

you are fine. you have a 12v power supply with a remote on/off, and a 12v light. just hook it up, remembering that LED's are polarity sensitive. + is red, black is -.
