Default Max Power, No control

My Marathon is a victim of Ike. Salt water came half way up to, but not over, the batteries.
After a few weeks I finally had time to get to the golf cart. I connected the charger to the cart in the garage, and went into the flood-devastated house. Later that day while cleaning debris form the house, I heard a loud crash and screeching tires in the garage. To my surprise, I found that after the batteries had charged, the cart had lunged forward into a metal cabinet, jammed it into the garage wall, and continued to spin the tires until it stopped for some reason. I had inadvertently left the controller in FWD while it was charging.
Here’s my problem now. If I turn on the power switch with the controller in either FWD or REV, the cart peals out at full power without touching the pedal. On the positive side, it has more power than it has ever had.
What the heck is the problem?

Need some more info. What year, controller or resistor cart???? Sounds like FNR switch is shorted. Search here, there are several Ike threads that should help you.

Sounds like to me the selonoid has failed closed so that when the charger put enough juice into the batteries it took off. It could be a micro switch too though.

sounds to me like the throttle assy. is dirty from Ike waters and needs to be cleaned. Good luck!
