The Wii Remote is the original, primary controller for the Nintendo Wii game console released November 19, 2006. The model number for the original Wii Remote is RVL- 003.
Best suggestion would be to open the controller up and inspect for any corrosion or water damage. From the sounds of it, this is probably the case. If inspection doesn't come up with any leads then the only other suggestion I could make is replacing it with a used one off eBay. They're very cheap now and it's the most economical move to save time and/or money.
