I am not sure, but if you cut only the ground, that concern is less significant, which is why I chose to do it that way. Try only reversible tests at first. Often the wiring diagrams mislead a little, and we only discover that more components are affected after we have cut a wire. It can be easily repaired, but the wiring aystem in permanently marked, of course.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
