I have a similar problem to Thierry's. If the software balance fixes do not resolve the problem, is it worth swapping the plugs (the light tan ones...are they DIN?).
If this makes sense, what is the best way to go about doing it, as my guess the female end of the cord is embedded in some form or circuitry card?

It sounds like a wheel balance problem. Normally wheel balance produces speed specific vibration in the front wheels and steering. To me this sounds similar, caused by one or both rear wheels being seriously out of balance. Get them balanced and ensure that they are both at the SAME pressure.
I had a similar issue when my kids mixed rechargeable and regular batteries in the Wii balance board. The acid leaked and the springs corroded. But I figured out a quick fix - see photos. The springs look just like the spring-end of a safety pin, so I just snipped the ends of two safety pins and fixed them in with needle-nose pliers. Safety pins conduct electricity and the fix works fine. Cheers.
Well - had the same problem, even got a walkthru from Nintendo Support. I was ready to pack it to ship off when, demonstrating everything I had done to a friend -- the darn thing started working again! I think what was going on was the sync was "poor" with the console -- it could sort of see the balance board but not enough to actually work. I did the red-button-on-the-board/ red-button-on-the-Wii thing (press board button then quickly press the console button) several times until it "took" solidly. Don't give up -- keep trying. Yeah their hardware/software has a bug......
