Many car owners at least once faced such a problem as being shocked by cars. And if it occurred only once, you may not pay attention to it. But what to do if the car has already given you several electric shocks? Since the best conductor of electricity is metal, it is logical that most often it is metal parts of the car, such as door frames and bodywork, that get electrocuted. The current discharge usually occurs when touching the outer part of the car, as a rule, when leaving the car. The causes of current in a car can vary, and here are the most common ones:
- Synthetic clothing is worn by the driver. If you prefer things made of synthetic materials, you probably know that they are highly electrifying.
- Synthetic covers. If they are made of artificial materials, they may well become sources of electricity, because the driver is constantly in contact with them, and any of his movements create friction.
- Synthetic steering wheel cover. It can also become a cause of electric shocks because the car owner interacts with the steering wheel constantly.
- Bodywork static electricity. But how and why does it occur? It’s simple: the car body rubs against the air too. Yes, yes, electricity arises and accumulates during movement and interaction of the body with air masses. But even if the car was in a parking lot, it too can be electrocuted, which will occur when it is exposed to strong wind. And when you touch the body, the resulting charge will transfer to your body and you will feel it.
- Malfunctions in the electronics system. Many modern cars are literally “stuffed” with all kinds of sensors, indicators, and other electronic devices and parts. They are so technically advanced that it must be soon possible to gamble with them and read teen patti game review! And if any of them is broken or will not be fully and reliably isolated, the current can go beyond its limits and spread across the metal body of the car.
How to fix the problem? First of all, it is necessary to find out the reasons for such a phenomenon. If you choose natural clothes and prefer high-quality covers, electricity still occurs, and even if the car does not move, it is probably due to problems with electronics. And if you think that you can easily eliminate them on your own, you are very wrong: firstly, you can only aggravate the situation, secondly, rough intervention can provoke more serious breakdowns, thirdly, one awkward movement can lead to the strongest electric shock.
So it is better to seek help from an experienced and qualified technician. If everything is in order with electronics, then the following tips will help to eliminate the problem: first of all, change your clothes. If possible, choose things made of natural materials that not only do not conduct current, but also perfectly evaporate moisture and allow air to pass, which will provide you with maximum comfort while driving.
Covers should be high-quality and preferably made of natural materials or at least combined, in which cotton predominates. Certain tactics for getting out of the car will also help. If you change the usual sequence of actions, the electric shock can be avoided. So, many people first get out of the car, and then close the door, feeling the charge of electricity. But you can do otherwise: open the door, first touch it with your hand (always the metal part), and then put your foot on the ground. In this way, the current will go from the car to the ground, and you will not feel anything. To enter the car safely, you can first touch it with a part of your body covered with clothes or an accessory, such as a bag. Now you are safe from electric shocks and can get in and out of the vehicle without fear!
