    I have tried it in the wheel and out of the wheel but no luck.

    I'm having same problem with steering not working properly. In or out of a wheel the Control will steer okay for a few games then will stop turning to the right. When you turn right the cart will actually go left. I even tried swapping controllers and the same problem occurred. Also, rebooted, re-calibrated control, completely shut off - unplugged - and repowered on...all to no avail. If I point the control length-wise at the sensor bar and rotate left to right I can get some steering back but it's very difficult to control in this manner.

    I also have this problem.  I have done all of the re-booting, re-syncing, unplugging, taking out batteries, new batteries etc that is possible.  I can sync the controller but then as soon as the cursor goes off the screen, it comes back upside down and behaving strangely.  If i keep the cursor on the screen, I can play games, but I cannot steer in MarioKart, with or without the Nintendo brand steering wheel.  Also, our balance board won't sync. I turned off every light and IR source possible. I think this is a console problem, but I called nintendo today and they are having high call volume and did not give me the option to hold the line and wait for an operator.

You must have a wii steering weel and connect the wii romote to that, then you should be good to go. If you already purchased one, then the wii remote must not be in exact position on the steering wheel.

I cant steer , when i put the remote into the steering wheel for mario cart wii, the gas works but it does not steer, just goes straight


Well, I don't use the Wii wheel. I played with the gba and Game Cube controller. So I recommend to try using the nunchuk in your races. Play Wii play to test your wii remote's pointing and twisting ability's

Cheat to pick your weapons on mario cart on nintendo wii


This requires you to have Home Brew and an action card, which let's you mod your Wii to play DVD's and lots of other games and media. But, if you do so, the next update will more than likely brick your wii, if it is not blocked already.

I'm having problems pairing 2nd controller


I have a Wii and this game I hope I can help;

Assure there is no nunchuck connected
Mario Kart Wii has its own Controller booter so;
Go into multiplayer (2, 3 or 4)
Then move to the right and select add Wii remote
Do as the instruction says

I found it odd too that the home overlay cant activate the controller on Mario Kart but that is how you do it.

Hope this helped ;)

Wii mario kart, second wheel won't turn


I tried resyncing from the main screen, but one of the wiimotes still didn't work. I read to smack the wiimote facedown in your hand a couple of times, and that worked!!!

Apparently the motion sensor can get stuck inside, although it doesn't totally make sense, because previously when the wiimote didn't steer, it still moved on the screen to choose character, car, etc.
