I just got a new Wiimote, and after synching it to my Wii, I played Mario Kart. After starting I found that, if I held the remote horizontally, my kart turned wildly to the left. In order go in a straight line I hold it at an angle. I re-booted and re-synched, and problem still occurred. What's more, I noticed that instead of the pointer being where it is normally for most remotes, the pointer was three inches up and to the left.
Is there anything I can do to fix the problem? (I think it has to be a problem with the Wiimote, as my other remote works fine.)
