yes that is right on my sons RS2000 Mk5 you can get a shock from the
ignition switch? he has had a ticking noise in the car for some time so on investigating this we find sparks are being generated in the steering colum it's a good stregnth blue spark it jumps from the colum to the mouning brachet & it bites you,it will happen @ slight revs above tick over, any one had this before

this problem could be difficult to trace. it could be static electricity or a very bad earth somewhere in the car.

i would clean all earth points in the car (under the dash) and to the engine and battery to start whit.
