Why do I get a shock almost every time I touch the driver side door with my bare hand? Is there a remedy for that? The dealer has no clue.
+1 I found that sliding off the seat and your clothing material cause this as well. Don't slide off the seat helps me.If you get the shock when you touch the door after getting out of the car, it's because you're building up a static charge when you slide off the seat. The best way to fix this problem is to open the door first, grab on to the metal part of it and then slide off the seat. Doing this will transfer the static electricity to ground as you generate it, instead of turning you into a capacitor and then discharging all at once.
(I can't help but think of the scene in Office Space)
