LED installation question

Hi, im new to the forum. I recently got a 2000 Prelude, and i found that the high beam is missing. When i took it to a mechanic, he said that the previous owner installed LED headlights before and then took it off before he/she sold the car. I heard from many saying that LED headlights cannot be installed using the high beam location. I wondering if that is true. And also, does anyone know how much it would cost to fix/replace the high beam? Thx.

Re: LED installation question

Are you sure he didn't mean HID headlights?

LED headlights are a brand new technology, at least from what I've noticed and they aren't available on many cars. It is said that your shouldnt use HIDs in your high beams because the constant on/off will burn the bulbs up...

What do you mean, the high beam is missing? Just the bulbs? or the wiring also?

Pics would help a lot.

The bulb is missing, but the wiring is still there.
