Default Turning on Ninebot ES2 headlight applies brakes!

Just noticed a weird issue with my new Ninebot ES2 electric scooter: turning on the headlight applies the regen brake!

Which effectively means Iím unable to ride with the light on. Turning the headlight back off again resumes normal operation. Iím not sure if this is electrical or a software issue that might get fixed in a future firmware.

Anyone here with that has managed to fix the issue?

I've suffered from the exact same issue with my ES2 + extra battery.
I had to return and get new unit 3 times (!) from my local retailer until I asked for a full refund.

I'm pretty sure it's a shitty firmware issue, because it happened on 3 different brand new units.

I've used latest firmware V1.2.0.

Would be nice to hear from someone if a version upgrade solves this.

Hello FreudianSlip - in my experience this is likely to be a hardware issue, requiring a certain component to be replaced to resolve. I suggest getting in touch with the retailer you purchased your KickScooter ES2 from so they can repair/replace under warranty (if still covered), or as after-sales service.
