Default 2004 shock problem

Whenever I get out of my '04 Camry I get a shock when my fingers touch the
outside of the door. It's gotten to the point that I close the door with
the side of my hand because it's not as annoying. Is this common with
this vehicle?

It's common with many makes with synthetic fibers seats to varying
degrees. I have not experienced this with leather seats.

Static shocks are common in dry air as in winter, that is how fires
start at gas stations when you are filling up.

I've found this problem in my '96 Camry depends on humidity levels and what
type of shirt you're wearing. Synthetic blends seem to make it worse. During
winter there is no static problem.

It maybe because of your seats cover. Or the type of clothes you are
putting on, (i.e. if you put on wool traouser you will face the same
problem) also shoes made with some materials in thier sole. specially
chainees made. just check these points and you will find one of them is
the reason.

It might help to get a grounding strap for your car. It screws into (for
example) the bottom of the trunk and drags on the ground, dissipating
excess charge.

Throw out chain before you get out.

Have you changed tires recently? Some tire brands seem to insulate (and
store static in the car) better than others.

It is called static

static from the rubbing of your clothing when you are driving will
cause this
