Default I keep getting zapped.

I'm sure it's gotta be something simple like a ground or what not, but when I get out of the car I keep getting shocked. I can't stand it when this happens and want to get it figured out.

I know someone else out there is getting shocked as well.

I get shocked all the time. It has nothing to do with your car's charging system. It's just static electricity that forms from your feet on the carpet. It happens more out here in the dry climate compared to more humid climates. At least that's what I've noticed.

Go get the static guard spray from the store... I had to do it with my old Mazda seats... sometimes I didn't spray them though just to have fun. Just get the back of someone's ear lol

I use that "bounce bar" for the dryer. I hate it when I find a dryer sheet in my pant leg when I'm out in public
