Hi Germain. I'm not sure I like the design. Your 12v
battery voltage is permanently connected to the two
PIC pins, which:
1. is way out of voltage spec!!
2. will drain battery into the PIC protection diodes.
Why not replace the 10M with 1N4148 glass diodes, these
are cheaper and smaller than resistors, and will
solve the two problems...
