Re: Not necessarily
Unfortunately they don't teach the need for a wetting current at university these days. Most cars use some sort of micro switch with plunger for this sort of application
A quick sample from Omron shows something like 1mA at 5V as a minimum ie 4k7, a surprisingly low value for the average fresh engineer.

Finger prints are not unique.
Digital minutiae are far from unique as they sample "features" of the finger print, usually ridges that just stop somewhere, forks and kinks. The number of truly unique and possible vales this allows varies with the scanner, but its not very many. This makes finger prints useful for confirming identity, but only useful as a hint to identifying an unknown person
The digital storage of finger prints is very proprietary and most governments end up with several databases of them that cannot be compared
I carry a certificate issued by the national registration department stating that my finger print cannot be read for my identity card, once you are over 50 your print quality collapses
I recently visited the UK and found that my cards were a total lottery of using their 6 digit PIN, signing and not working.
