Its goes slow...real slow...IMHO the speed sensor is a safety device that allows the controller to read real motor rpms,

Probably a high-speed magnet installed but the sensor was still connected.

Your IQ carts' controller will look for the signal coming from the speed sensor. If it does not detect it, it will place you in Limp Mode. If you have it unplugged, then you have a faulty controller as I have played with them for testing with a hand-held, but never seen a way to bypass it and it still operate correctly without a signal. (Unless it was an aftermarket controller where you disable the speed limit)

100% correct, but the OP states it's a 2004 model, which would have to be IQ.

To the OP,

can we get a vehicle serial number? Maybe it's not really a 2004.
