Wahoo Kickr 5 and auto-braking HELP SOS


I have a Wahoo Kickr 5 trainer that I’ve being using for 2 years without any issues. Since a couple weeks, the moment I start pedaling, the trainer automatically starts applying brake making the pedalling nearly impossible. I disconnected the trainer from Garmin, Zwift. I removed the Kickr from the Wahoo Fitness App, unplugged and then performed a Factory reset (per wahoo agent recommandation). I reconnected the Kickr in the Wahoo Fitness app and used the ERG mode and set the Power to 10watts just be on the safe side. Auto-braking is sporadically on and off, but the moment I enter Zwift app on my Apple TV, auto-braking gets on and making impossible to turn my crank arms.

I don’t have this issue with my Tacx Neo 2 nor with my Rollr.

Is this Kickr good for the dumpster? I’m quite desparate at the moment not being able to use my Kickr.



I’d test it with some other cycling simulator apps before assuming it’s bad.

There was another zwift app interfering with the kickr. All good now!
