Is this the same Star cart you purchased for $500 and upgraded it with a 600 amp controller?

Check magnet and speed sensor. Solenoid can also cause the cart to run at 4MPH.

If you still have the Curtis controller in it, it will flash the amber light on the front of it and give out a code. If someone has a scan tool, that will tell you also.
