Why isn't my second wii remote control not working?
Top Voted Answer
1. The battery power is out.
2. The Wii Remote is broken.
3. The Wii Remote has not been synched.
I had the same problem, and it turned out to be #3. All Wii Remotes that come with a Wii have already been synched, but new ones must be synched first in order to use. In order to synch it, get the Wii Remote and the Wii together. Open the memory card hatch on the Wii. There should be a red button that says Synch on it. On the Wii Remote, there is a red button that says Synch under it under the Wii Remote battery lid. Press both red buttons at the same time. They then should be synched, and the Wii Remote will work. If not, try holding the button.

If you have at least 3 Gamecube controllers (or Wavebird recievers) connected, then you will have to disconnect one of them so the Wii remote can take it's place. This game seems to give priority to Gamecube controllers.

It's an issue with the Wii's receiving wavelengths I think. Kinda like the Xbox 360, the console becomes accustomed to the specific controllers that are linked to it. For example, my Wii knows the one Wiimote that always connects to it, but as soon as my friend came over with his Wiimote, we needed to redo the connections.
What we did was press the home button on the first player's Wiimote. Then click the Wiimote picture that appears on the side to bring up controller options. Select Reconnect and follow the instructions to link the controllers. We had to do this everytime we started up the Wii, so it can be a bit of a hassle.
Hope this helps a bit!

Check if its turned on, if not the problem is that its not connected to the Wii.To connect it push the red button near the bateries and then the red button thats over the SD card slot in the Wii. Just remember that after connecting the Wiimote in your Wii it will only respond if its near the Wii it was last connected.Just connect in the Wii you want to play.

Maybe the battery power is empty!

There are a number of things that may cause this:
1)Battery may not be charged.
2)Remote could be turned off(!)
3)You haven't correctly syncronized the remote (press the red button near the batteries, then the on on the front of your wii).
4)The remote is simply broken
5)The button you are trying to reister the remote with is sticky or won't detect properly.
The list goes on and on.

If it isn't not working, then there's no problem.

What you have to do is sync the second controller to the Wii using the two sync buttons, one is on the controller, the other is on the Wii console. the instructions to do it is in the book. Its how i got mine to work.

Press the Home button on Wii remote 1. Go to Wii Remote Settings. Next, go to Reconnect. Wii remote 1 will be disconnected, but don't worry. Then, press the 1+2 buttons at the same time on each Wii Remote, in the order you want them connected (for example, if you want a certain remote to be Wii Remote 1, press 1+2 on that one first.)
Syncing remotes only changes the primary remote for the console. It doesn't add different controllers.
