Power door lock for ZAZ Tavria based on iButton

Since ZAZ Tavria car has possibility of locking door without a key, it is possible to build a simple power door lock which uses iButton DS1990C and only unlocks doors. In this case it is possible to use single power MOSFET instead of relay.

Power door lock is built with Atmel MCU ATTINY13A and uses iButton DS1990 keys. Parts of the lock placed into the case of plotter cartridge. Power MOSFET in D2PAK case mounted on soldering side of PCB. It is easy to get such MOSFETs from used PC motherboards or video cards. It is possible to use any MOSFET which opens with logic level and has minimal Vdrain-source not less than 20 V

It is possible to use single power door lock in the car, as well as two of them - one per door, what is more reliable. Sockets can be made of old door lock cylinders. It is not required to attach power ground to the socket directly, but in any case power ground must be connected to the door with wire, since contact through door hinges is not good enough. Bolt clamps were used to attach wires to the device, but appeared it would be more handy to use other kind of connectors to attach wires more easy in hard-to-reach places. Resident write/erase button is not necessary as rare used.
