    The other day my remotes wouldn't just stay connected to my wii, tried to change batteries, to resync, even played with Dolphin on my pc. So they arent the problem.
    The wii itself turns on and I can "use" it, i mean i can't use it because i have no controllers connected, only if I use Priiloader and a GC Controller to get to hb channel.

    Any tips on a possible solution?

    I'm thinking maybe the BlueTooth module died. That much I know, but I have no idea how this could be fixed.

    From what I read if the bluetooth module is dead the console wouldn't even boot

    Really? Well, how about if it's *partially* dead: the console recognizes it and boots, but it doesn't actually work.

    Well just found this https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-how-to-wire-a-wii-s-bluetooth-module-to-a-pc-usb-port
    after 15 mins soldering i plugged it in to my computer and i am playing mario kart on Dolphin, with my wii mote, with my wii's bluetooth module... So the issue is not with the module :/
    Is there any way to control the wii menu without a controller???

    Hmm. How about you just sell your Wii and keep the sensor bar? You could solder it to USB, since, ironically, it actually sends signals to the WiiMote, not the other way around, so it only needs power. I recommend this option.

    Well, I placed the module back on the wii and it's working again :o
    Maybe it was not doing proper connection on the wii, maybe plugging it to the computer did reset something in it.
    Thanks for the help anyway ;)
