Re: setting up 2nd wii remote
You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
You have to press the red button that say sync and the red button that also says sync on your wii console at the same time.Or go to home and go to wii remote settings then press 1 and 2 at the same time

This is factory default with the Nintendo Wii, Try simply removing the batterieswhen done, OR!, which I do, is hold my hand over the top of the WiiMoteand then press the power button, this prevents the Wii from getting the remote'sinstruction to power down, the remote thinks the Wii got it and then shuts down.Good Luck!
There are 2 ways to connect remotes on Wii. The way that the remotes sync permanently to a Wii system and the second one that connects the remote temporarily. To connect the remotes pernanently, open the flap on the front of the Wii and press the red sync button. Then take the remotes and press the buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. Do the same with the other controllers
The second way can be done via the Home menu. Go to home menu pressing the home button and then point the remote to the bottom of the screen (where a wii remote is iconized) Then go to the synchronization menu to synchronize the remotes. Press 1 and 2 of the remotes to get synchronized.
The time you press the buttons on the remotes determines the player assigned to it. For example, the first remote you synchronize is the first player, the second is the second player etc.
Also, I strongly advice you to READ THE MANUAL seriously... do it.
try resyncing the second wii remote for a second player. By using the red button on the wii and the wii remote. I had this problem when i brought my wii remotes to my friends birthday party to play mario party 8.
We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M
Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common: Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp Try these steps!
Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.
Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.
After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.
Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture below).
When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
