    Same problem here. I can add the second controller fine for Wii Sports, but not for MarioKart.

    Same problem! Lights flash on the second controller when I push Home, press 1&2 at the same time and when pressing 'A' as the screen suggests - none of those work

    Just bought one and have the same problem.

    This is crazy! I have the same problem too. I can't add an additional controller. It clearly says to push A on the bottom of the screen. I know the controller works, because I tried it on other games. I held the button down. I've pushed the + button with it. It won't add another controller.

I had the same problem and called Nintendo support. They had us unplug the wii console for 30 seconds, plug it back in and start the system back up. BEFORE pressing the A button on the health and safety screen, we needed to take the battery cover off of one remote, press the red sync button, then quickly press the sync button on the front of the wii console (in the front - you have to open the flap). Once the single blue light was on at the bottom of the remote, do the same with the other remote (press the sync button on it and then on the wii console). Then the second blue light should be lit on the second remote. Hope that helps!

your friend will need to tell you their 12 digit friend code. They can find it by going to the Mario Kart Wii Channel Select License screen.

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

Second remote will not recognize the wii mario kart. Second remote will work with all other wii games, except for Mario Kart.


Had the same problem last night.... Turn off the wii system by unplugging , wait a couple of seconds and plug back in. Next, the front of the wii has a pocket that opens, there is a red button. Put the disc to mario kart in the wii once you see the federal regs push and hold the red button on the wii for 15 seconds then once this 15 seconds is up with the controllers battery case open push the red button to the original controller. All of lights will flash and then stop. Push the red button on the wii console again just once. Then push the red button on the second remote wait till all lights stop flashing push the red button on the console and now they should be married to the wii system. Hope this helps----do you know how to get the volume? We don't have any volume

Second controller doesn't recognize accelerate, reverse works


Try resynchornizing it to your Wii again. If this doesnt not work, you may have a defective Wii Remote. You should consider replacing if synchronizing it does not work.

Mario cart will not recognize my second remote.


Another possibility is that the original poster did not push the "+" button on the main remote when on the screen in Mario Kart to register additional remotes.

This happened to me. I was holding down the 1 and 2 buttons over and over on the second remote, watching the blue lights flash, but the remote wouldn't register. Eventually someone noticed the instructions on the screen to push the "+" button. When you push the "+" button, another screen appears to let you really register additional remotes.

In Wii Sports, there is no pushing of the "+" button to register new remotes... I had incorrectly assumed it worked the same way in Mario Kart and didn't bother reading the on-screen instructions.
