A "sparking sound"? Like that clicking noise the igniter on those electronic ignition gas stoves makes? And it's coming from inside the car?
Are you sure it's not relay "chatter"?

Get a second opinion from another electrician and try to isolate the conditions that may trigger the noise and what accessories are on when you hear it.

Hey, I forgot to mention it happens where trying to start the car that is. So as i turn the key it sounds like a taser firing on the left hand side by the glove compartment. I think there is a fuse box there. I react by turning the ignition off and then try to start the car again & everything is normal.

Methinx on the passenger side below there has the a/c relay panel and blower fuse. If you turn ignition on without trying to start, do u get it as well? Also, do you hear the noise when you try to start with the a/c off?

Check that relay box in the kick panel and make sure none of the relays are melted or have warped casings or that the relay sockets are sooty or melted. There's supposed to be a body ground nearby as well, make sure it's making a good electrical connection.

No shocking sound with the ignition on, plus I never start the car with the AC on. I will make some time & check the relays again. You have been very helpful!

If possible, leave the kickpanel off for a couple days and see if you could isolate where the noise is coming from, as and when it happens. Don't let it go on for too long though, just a few seconds is prolly all you need to reach over and feel if one of the relays in the panel is clicking.

Any update on this?

I have gotten this sound about three times. TTTL say they may have to check the starter, but the noise was coming from near the glove compartment so that diagnosis seeming kind of strange to me.

Never mind I found it, my new question will be where is the flasher relay in the nze. Normally its behind the instrument panel.... But I'm not able to see behind same as I'm still trying to figure out how to remove the lower have of the dashboard under the steering column
