Default Warning, please check your cable

Upon swapping out my starter motor I noticed a potential hazard.

The + to starter motor was rubbing on the corner of another component and could have caused a big problem.
I'm not sure this cable is fused so could have even been a fire who know.

I just want others to check theirs.

I sleeved it with a hose twice and taped it up.

Might be worth a STICKY
