Help adding additional LEDs to Walmart trap

Trying to mod a walmart trap by adding a accurate pedal to it and running new wiring from the circuit board to the switch from the original pedal. I some minor soldering experience, but I really need help figuring out how to add a few new LEDs to the trap/pedal combo. First, I want to add a red LED to the pedal and have it activate when the switch on the pedal is pressed, I tried soldering an LED to the switch but it didn't light up. Also, I want to change the green LEDs on the trap to multi color ones. I swapped one out and the one green LED left and the new multi color LED worked, but when I changed the other green LED to another multi color LED they then both didn't work. The multi color LEDs are 3-4v which I'm guessing is the issue due to only 2 AA batteries running the whole trap but don't know how to go about adding more power. Any help anyone can provide would be awesome!

You’re probably going to have to use an Arduino. The wiring on the Spirit stuff is garbage- one slight tap in the wrong spot and they’re gooched.
