    A couple months after installing some LED headlights, I noticed that my driver side light has become stuck on high beam. At first I thought it was the LEDs. Last week however, my driver side headlight has become filled with moisture. The entire lens is covered in moisture. I am going to replace the headlights with a set from Depo soon.

    Do you think replacing the headlights will fix the issue? I know I can just go swap the leds from driver side to passenger and see if it functions but I really think its a headlight issue now.

    Swap the bulbs and see if it fixes it. The moisture in the headlight is coming from some small gap/hole. Make sure the bulb/seat is securely fastened to get rid of gaps. It's easy to get rid of moisture when it's hot out but now your best bet might be to tie one of those dessicate packages onto some dental floss and drop a few of them into the headlight housing to soak up the moisture.
