Potentiometers on the header should all be the same for 2100 to 2300 series combines. I would be pulling that harness out of the rear beam that you installed and make sure there isn't any rodent damage on it. Seems to be a very common issue on all flex heads have seen it quite a few times

The main problem was the connectors. I connected them and cleaned them about 7 times. On the 7th trip up the ladder, the 2188 recognize the header. Now it is oscillating real bad. Going to set it up by the manual adjusting the sensitivities and see how that goes.

Update for those that may try this.

3020 Flex Header
Conversion Kit and other requirements to fit 3020 Flex Header on a 21/23/2500 series combine are listed below

kit Part No. 84480201*
21/23/2500 Series
Mechanical Components
Electrical Components
PTO Half Shaft
Instruction Manual

*Combine must be equipped with the following other required kits listed below.
Other Required Kits or Components
87539791 Sliding Latch Pin Kit – With Field Tracker
87539793 Sliding Latch Pin Kit – Without Field Tracker
87301386E Hydraulic Connector – Single Point Hydraulic Hookup

We made our own Hydraulic hookup kit.

The head needs to be tilted as far forward as you can get it. If not it drag up under the header. We actually had to make some extension brackets for our 2366 without field tracker. With field tracker it is not as big of an issue.

You will have to move the sensor arm to the outer bolt hole and may have to lie to the display and tell it that there are 3 cylinders instead of two if AHHC makes the head to jumpy.

It is heavier than a 1020 and if you have upper bearing plates (pn 100273A2) are worn or not greased you will know it quickly, as it will stop tilting.

Also this is a metric head. You will need a new tool box full of metric bolts, sections, and guards.

Imho. It is as good if not a little better than a 1020. And with everyone around here wanting drapers you might be able to find a good deal on one. Good Luck!
