A shocking problem...
04-24-2008, 02:57 PM
Everytime I get out of my Tucson I get shocked and its not a light zap either. I've looked at the battery and cannot find the grounding strap to the frame and wonders if anyone has any helpfull hints that would help me cure this problem?

The leather seats in my wife's '07 Tuscon will make both of us strike an arc big enough to power Atlanta for a week. :biggrin:
The seats in my '01 Santa Fe don't do it, but I bought it used so the car stealership's detail shop might have used something on the seats that addresses the static shock problem. If I can find out what they used, I'll post it. In the mean time, when you get out of your car, discharge the static through the car key. If the arc jumps between the key and the door rather than your finger and the door, it's a bit less painful. Bzzzttt!!
