Re: Shocking Shifter
Your body is becoming the path of least resistance. Every once in a while I will grab a 12V wire behind the dash of a car and have my elbow resting on the shifter mount or something else metal and I can feel a very slight tingling sensation. Some poeple are more sensitive than others.
Since normally the horn wire on the steering wheel connects a ground for the horn relay you may double check to see that the column is grounded good through the mounting bolts under the dash. I have seen some cars with ground straps on the steering coupler (rag) joint.
