People lets have a little decorum please. A fellow Galaxie owner needs ourJim, I'm afraid we don't have enough information to help you. Go shock yourself about a dozen more times and report back.
You ARE the conductor, the door is the Ground, THAT is why the static charge zaps you. You only feel the current as it LEAVES your body. But you insulating that spring made a separation of you and the body that's why you don't get the zap from the horn anymore.I'm glad you guys are having fun.
I will take another look at the horn ring but I really don't know what I'd be looking for. This is the second horn relay I've used with the same results.
As far as being grounded, no you don't have to be grounded. Just think about it, you walk across carpet and grab hold of a door handle and get shocked. That's static electriciy that builds up to a lot of volts.
Come to think of it I'm going to lay rubber floor mats in it instead of carpeted floor mats and see it that makes a difference. That might be where it's coming from. Jim PS I bet you guys would really feel bad if tomorrow in the Warsaw paper the headlines read " Local man dies of electrocution while tooting his own horn" lol
