    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.
