I don't know if it has to do with my system or not, but i've been getting shocked every time i get out of my car. Could this have something to do with the grounding of the amp in anyway?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Probably has more to do with the cold weather and dryer cliamate. I noticed it seamed to happen more here in Mn because as it got colder the cliamate also got dryer and I would get shocked more. Never happened in Savannah to me but it also was always Humid, even when it was cold.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Autobot is correct. The dryer the air the more static electricity is generated. I've been getting shocked from static electricity over the past 3 days to the point I don't like touching anything metal or anything that can conduct electricity.

You can try grounding yourself by touching your car with your jacket or shirt that way you won't get that bad of a shock, but sometimes this doesn't work.

Also, check the condition of the ground strap under the hood. If it's corroded even a little bit, it could cause this.

Guys, the 100% guaranteed or your money back way to cure being shocked as you get out of your car is to TOUCH YOUR CAR BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE GROUND!!!

Just grab onto the door or the roof as you are getting out. If you touch a metal part you will ground yourself to the car. If you put your foot on the ground you will ground yourself to ground and then you will have a different voltage to earth than your car and you will get shocked when you touch your car.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

it is not your system. It is just normal static. Quit being such a b!tch. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> It doesn't hurt.

Houston is a dry climate.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> And this happens with lots of cars. I do notice that seems to happen more with cars that sit lower to the ground.

Houston. Houston? HOUSTON is a DRY F*CKING CLIMATE<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Oh man, either global warming really is real and the farking Gulf of Mexico dried up already, or else somebody is smoking crack. I grew up in Houston and that sh*t is a WET climate. Even if it's not raining every afternoon at 3:30 then it's like 75-100% humidity ALL THE TIME. If you want to talk about a dry climate, try El Paso.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>

Oh, Kinalyx way to not read the post before yours BTW<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

edit Yes Autobot I saw the smilie, I recognize that it was a joke.


<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>Yes, you.
