i get a strong shock when getting out of my honda accord 2000 only when i'm wearing a coat. can i do anything to stop this?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com It is most likely your coat rubbing on the car's seat when you slide out that causes the static which generates the spark. The dilemma is easy to solve. If you put your hand on the metallic part of the door as you slide out of the car, you will not get shocked once you are out of the car. This would only be true if the static electricity resides on you.
