What happens if your Wii Remote (Wiimote) does not rumble? While it may required a repair, in many cases some simple adjustments may be required to turn the functionality on. Especially if you ran your Nintendo Wii with low batteries for a period of time.
It is important to remember that not all games support the rumble feature. First verify with the game’s manual that the game itself supports the rumbling feature. If it does, please follow the instructions below in order to enable the rumble feature on your Wii Remote.
Go to the HOME Menu and verify that the battery power isn't low on your Wii Remote.
Next, go to the Wii Remote settings and verify that the rumble feature is turned "on” – if it is not, change this setting to “on”, save the settings, and return to the game.
Go to the Wii Menu and point at the Wii button on the bottom-left corner of the screen. The Wii Remote should rumble slightly.
If it rumbles, your problem is fixed.
