I'm not the primary driver of the car, so it needs to be automatic. The consequences of it not opening up are not good if someone else doesn't know what to do.

I'd like to stay away from the programmable controller. I'm familiar with programming and leanring the language probably wouldn't be a big deal. But, I don't think I should need it. Plus, I don't want to have to buy the extra equipment. The thermal switch will tell the door when to open and shut. The timer just needs to break the connection 1 second after the thermal switch turns on or off.

After reading a bit I might just be able to use a SPST one or single shot relay? I just read about these and know nothing so far.
