Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wiimote steers with one person and not another

My wiimote will not steer in mario kart in my hands, but if my wife uses the same wiimote, it's fine. i can use all of the buttons without a problem (accelerate, reverse, jump, etc.) and navigate among the menus, but i cannot steer. when i hand the remote to my wife, everything works. this happens with both of our wiimotes.
i do not have the same problem with wii sports - everything seems to be ok there.
I have tried resetting/resynching, lightly tapping the wiimote to see if there is an accelerometer problem, stood in different parts of the room, replaced batteries - nothing works for me.
any ideas?

I have a wii myself and i notice that the sensor bars can be a little speratic depending on where you sit or sometimes if the sensors could get a lil dusty and cause this. Ive also herd that sunlight can mess with the sensor bar so if your in a window lit room, try to use it in a dark room or at night to see if the sunlight could be a factor. clean the sensor bar and the sensors on the wiimotes some times it could be how you hold the wimote, your fingers could be covering the sensor so try holding it different.Or you just have to face the fact your wife is just better than you : ).

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

My AR DSI says My game is corrupt


Have fixed this on the DSi by deleting the Mario Kart DS file using the Action Replay DSi Code Manager software. Under MY CODELISTS on right hand pane create a new file by clicking NEW then right click ADD NEW GAME type in both game code and game ID e.g. ACMP E45A2937 for Mario Kart DS. Right click Mario Kart DS and select add new cheat. The cheat codes can be copy and pasted in here.
Drag and drop the file from the right hand side to the left hand side of the window so that it appears in the memory card list. Press COMMIT CHANGES to save.

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.
