Routing grounds

Hi All, quick question..Is it ok to have a ground and a positive routed right next to each other? I was cleaning up some wiring and noticed the previous owner routed the battery cable in the wiring tunnel on the inside of the body. he also has 2 14AWG grounds routed next to it.

Is that an issue?

Thanks
Chris

Re: Routing grounds

Nope, Never. Unless they are both bare, then that could be a problem

Re: Routing grounds

Think about this....the entire body of the car is a ground...if it was an issue, you couldn't route your positive cable anywhere near the car.

I agree with Sean and Dennis.
