Gotcha. Could that resistor be the cause of my problem? Also my solenoid looks a little different than the one in the pic. More round like an older ford truck solenoid ... I have a wire going from one big post to the other with no resistor in it......just a solid wire

That right there would cause that problem as it would trigger a "Main Welded" condition, which makes the controller run at half-speed.

No reason that wire couldn't be removed for testing until the proper resistor is installed.

I would never have guessed the pre-charge resistor was replaced with a wire either....

I am glad he said something otherwise would have appeared that installing the pre-charge resistor fixed the issue.

I used a yellow 10 gauge wire to replace it and after looking at the picture of my old wiring I took before rewiring it I can tell where there was a resistor in the wiring... So if I have a wire there in place of it that possibly wont be my problem? Assuming I am right that resistor helps take a load off? If that resistor is replaced by a solid wire and the whole load is taken at once by the solenoid think its still possible that could be the problem??

That thinking is not correct.

Remove the wire and the cart should run as Gman said it may.
