Doe this cart have 2 solenoids?

And what is the pack voltage?
1 solenoid..... 60v on pack

Are the resistors necessary? First time messing with golf cars that have those on solenoid.

Yes, you want to leave the resistor. It keeps the capacitors in the controller charged.

Is the solenoid clicking?

If the resistors are bad could this cause the controller to not work properly?

It could cause issues, yes. It is easy to test with a multimeter though.

I will probably just replace them and work my way towards controller and motor.

You should be able to hear and feel a loud clunk from the solenoid if it’s working.
The resistor across the big terminals on the solenoid is fine. The “inch” that it moves is coming from power capacitors in the controller being charged through the resistor. When the solenoid is not closing the only power the Motor gets is from the capacitors which will give it a quick bump (moves an inch) then they’re out of power.

Check the small terminals on the solenoid to see if you have pack voltage present on both. You need key On, FnR in F or R, and press the throttle so the microswitch in the throttle clicks. This should send 48v to the small terminal of the solenoid. Make sure you have pack voltage present on both terminals.
There should be a yellow wire on one small terminal, that’s the negative that goes back to the OBC which is the on-board charge computer. On this cart The OBC provides the negative for solenoid activation and of the OBC has failed the solenoid will not engage and the cart won’t go. Jumper the yellow wire from the solenoid or run a new wire from that same terminal to the pack negative and see if the solenoid then operates. If it does, the OBC has failed and will need to be replaced, or get a new smart charger.
