Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be working with you today on your question!
Sometimes the controller and system loses sync
To restore sync of your controllers to your Wii do the following:
1. Open up the SD Card compartment on the Wii.
2. Open up the battery cover on the remotes.
3. Press the red Sync button on the Wii, and then on one of the remotes.
4. Repeat for whatever remotes need synced.
This will make every remote act like the P1 remote. For temporary syncing, just go into the Home Menu and click Wii Remote Settings. Click on another option(it'll say to press 1 and 2) and follow the instructions.
Let me know if that helps!
