Default Taylor T5z Buzz

I picked up my T5z and while tuning heard a buzz caused by an open bass E string. I checked all of the obvious culprits and no luck. It seemed to be coming from inside the body. I removed the plastic back cover and disconnected the power wire. No buzz! I moved the power wire under wires that were strapped down and again buzz gone. Screwed the back on and still no buzz. I plugged in to confirm that the new position of the power wire did not affect the amplified sound. Iím happy to report buzz gone and no secondary problems created!
