There is such a thing as static dissapative fabric that you could effectively ground, but it is definitely not what they chose to put in my truck!I'd love for there to be a way to ground the driver's seat, but how in the world do you ground fabric??? Anybody come up with a fix for this annoying problem?
Many years ago I had a full size Bronco and would nearly get electrocuted every time I got out of it. Then I noticed that there was an exposed screw head in the door handle. When pushing the door open and sliding off the seat, I would place a finger on top of the screw head and viola, no more shocks.Simple: Touch the frame of your door as you get out so you remain grounded. It always works, no installation required, and it's free.
The frame of the door is the problem. I can throw quite a spark off of it.Simple: Touch the frame of your door as you get out so you remain grounded. It always works, no installation required, and it's free.
