Will do, I've seen that mentioned somewhere before and forgot about it.
Thanks for the reminder!

I need some clarification on this point. I buy shielded Cat 5E or 6 cable for networks all the time. Those cables are not grounded. It is my understanding that the "shielding" is simply to reduce the amount of stray signals (electromagnetic interference) picked up or radiated by the cable.
"A shielded cable
is an electrical cable
of one or more insulated conductors
enclosed by a common conductive layer. The shield may be composed of braided strands of copper
(or other metal), a non-braided spiral winding of copper tape, or a layer of conducting polymer. Usually, this shield is covered with a jacket. The shield acts as a Faraday cage
to reduce electrical noise from affecting the signals, and to reduce electromagnetic radiation
that may interfere with other devices. The shield minimizes capacitively
coupled noise from other electrical sources."
Isn't this the same type of shielding we're referring to regarding these cables?
I'm not trying to argue with you, believe me my knowledge level of automotive wiring is worse than a two years olds. But shielding, as described above, make sense to me.
