Different carts and years of carts have different "throttle" systems. What year and model of cart are we talking about?

In the second picture, the 250 Ohm resistor is attached across the main terminals of the solenoid.

It looks like you have a Controller style Marathon.
Here is a schematic for it with the solenoid activation circuit traced out.

I concur with Kab, if the solenoid contacts are welded closed, turning on the key-switch would turn on the controller and away it would go.
How fast it will go depends on how well the throttle potentiometer is adjusted for zero with pedal up.

As you now know, it is a good idea to block wheels or jack the rear ones off ground when working on cart.
