Hi there.

Is there any issues with using a newer rev head with an older cpu?

I am looking to buy a few replacement heads for my LI that I bought in Feb 2013 (8.3 back then I believe but may be wrong) but I currently have a spare 8.9 head that keeps giving the connection to sensor X is poor or bad alert even though it looks perfect otherwise :confused: so buying newer rev heads for this cpu might be a waste of time.

Also, what about the reverse? Will the older heads work with a newer rev cpu or not If I were to get one of those?

Thank you in advance guys :cool:

Thanks for the heads up mate. I couldnt remember back that far and the 8.3 was stuck in my head for some reason but that makes sense cos even the 8.8 ones had none of the quick disconnect feature on the wires to the sensors but mine do so it stands to reason that mine is 8.9 also :cool:

Cheers for that. Much obliged. I would be looking for 1 or 2 of the 8.9 ones or whatever you have that will work with a LI bought in early 2013. Hopefully there is no issues with newer sensors and my older CPU etc?

I might need the mounting brackets as well as mine have gotten bent a few times over the years when being washed by other people who didnt know they were there so I suspect they might be getting some metal fatigue at this stage :(

If you have a Rev 8 CPU (one that has 8.xx firmware and is user updatable) it should be compatible with all head revisions. You can mix and match as well.

Thanks to [MENTION=7681]chakeubeam[/MENTION] for the 2 heads I got from you today bud. Arrived today very well and carefully packaged and they work just fine. Even solved the issue I was having with the parking mode going on full alert even though I was nowhere near anything :cool:.

Do you happen to have two 9.0 heads on a can use for the rear? I just recently found this board and have enjoyed the reading! I know this post is old, but read a lot are going to ALP and I am happy with LIs right now. Best Regards, Allen
