How to setup your Wii Controller.

To setup your Wii Controllers. Open the back of your Wiimote and insert the two AA batteries as indicated in the battery panel. Leave the cover off after you've inserted the batteries.
Turn on your Wii from the front of the console. Allow the Wii to cycle to the main menu.
Open the front door on the front of the console to reveal the SD card input and the "Sync" button.
Press the "Sync" button on your Wiimote, located just underneath the batteries. When it is in Sync mode the LED light will flash.
Press the "Sync" button on your Wii console to connect the signals and allow the controller and console to sync. This may take a few seconds, so be patient while it continues to connect.
Watch to see if the LED has stopped blinking. Once it has, your Wiimote is now connected to your Wii. Put the battery cover back on.
Use One-Time Synchronization to change the way the Wiimotes are synced to the console. You can do this by pressing the "Home" button on your controller and choosing "Reconnect." This is useful when you wish to change the player/controller layout without passing different Wiimotes around and losing track of which is which. One-time mode is reset to Standard once the Wii is restarted.

    the wiimote wont turn on at all


    Please check this first. Open the battery cover of the dead Wiimote then press the red sync button. If 4 indicators are flashing you may do the following steps.

    (1)Use a normal Wiimote to be the #1 controlloer
    (2)Enter any Wii game which supports 2 or more controllers
    (3)When the game's title screen is displaying, add up the 2nd controller by pressing the red button of Wiimote and the red button of Wii (i.e. standard sync procedure)
    (4)If you are lucky, the dead Wiimote will be back to work
