The LM336 is not going to work, it is a 2.5 volt reference. The LM339 or LM393 comparator is the thing to use. You need a sense resistor and a bias voltage in order to discriminate between current and no current. Set the bias voltage at 10 millivolts at the minus input of the comparator. Choose a sense resistor that will provide 20 millivolts at the positive input, relative to ground. Connect the LED in series with a suitable resistor from the output to VCC.
