    Hello. Does this occur only with your car door or all doors you touch? Also, are the door handles metal? If there is no electrical circuit running in them then that means you are probably having what we call paraesthesia, which may be due to nerve dysfunction or tetany due to calcium levels. Have your checked your blood sugar level?
