Heads up for illegal game copies
This mod is well known for not working with cracked game version or outdated ones. Even if other mods work for you this probably won’t since it uses other natives and dependencies. If your game is not legal or not updated, rating the mod is not fair. I can’t give support to people with cracked game versions. Go buy the game!
This mod lets you lock and unlock vehicles from the inside as well as from the outside of the vehicle. More features described below can be set to execute upon lock/unlocking. Default keys are L (lock) and U (unlock). Controller can be activated in the config file with the buttons you want (default open menu RB + D-Pad Right, lock RB + X and unlock RB + A).
The vehicle closest to you within a range will be affected, or if you choose, your last used vehicle. Features are turned on/off in the menu (F9 by default and then same keys as the native trainer) and in the included configuration file, (.ini). You can edit this config file with a texteditor.
Remember that settings will normally take affect first when lock/unlocking.
Features/ options in config file (turn on/off)
— Lock/unlock vehicles, from the inside as well as from the outside. Default keys are L (lock) and U (unlock). Controller can be activated in the config file with the buttons you want (default open menu RB + D-Pad Right, lock RB + X and unlock RB + A).
— Menu with most of the settings (open with default key F9 or controller RB + D-Pad Right if activated in config or menu in misc). Same default keys as the native trainer are used. Menu UI can be customized. Color, transparency and size of the menu can be changed.
— Unbreakable locks/ can’t get dragged out (not in the same way as my other mod). Can be set to make peds unable to break locks (default) and/or the players as well.
— Current vehicle set as persistent during the game session. If you want to save it between sessions you have to disable persistence under misc in the menu and add a mod like simple trainer which can store vehicles in files.
— Alarm, engine options, interior light (on/off and other modes).
— Notification lights. Customize your own with options to choose interval, number of flashes and flashing or sequential neon lights from the vehicle when lock/unlocking.
— Notification sounds. Customize your own with a horn sound (default) or the beep sound included, same as used by R* in multiplayer mode. Choose duration (if using the horn), number of signals and interval. In addition, fob sound can be used.
— Options for when headlights shall be on and strenght multiplier.
— Neon light customization and option for neon lights on all cars. Setting for sequential neon lights with an interval based on the speed of the car.

— Roof on convertibles close/open when locking/unlocking, while outside of the car. Hold H while inside for the same effect (included in the game already). Works on most convertibles.
— Two different player lock/unlock animations to choose from. (can be turned off).
— Only last used vehicle or only closest one to be used.
— Options for activation of automatic smooth random color changer (more about this in the config file!)

— Loud radio setting.
— Blip icon depending on vehicle type.
— More information in the configuration (.ini) file about the features.
You need the latest version of the tool Script Hook V by Alexander Blade in order for this mod to work.
Extract the .zip file with a program like Winrar. Copy VehicleRemoteCentralLocking v2.X.asi and vehicleRemoteCentralLockingConfig.ini into your GTA5 folder where your GTA5.exe is located. Remove it again to remove the mods features. Note that the mod is disabled by the script hook when going online into multiplayer.
How to make changes in the configuration file
With the mod comes the file called vehicleRemoteCentralLockingConfig.ini. As stated in the installation instruction, this file goes into your GTA5 folder where your GTA5.exe is located. Just like the mod itself. The file can be opened and edited just like a text file but you might have to right click on it and click open as. You can use any text editor, like notepad.
The .ini file is read from every time you press the key for lock or unlock and so when you make changes in it and save it, these changes will take effect when you tab back into the game and press one of these keys. There is no need to restart anything. Just go Alt + Tab while playing and switch to the .ini file, make some changes, save and Alt + Tab back into the game.
Make sure to replace both files when downloading a new version. Or check the change log for changes in the configuration file.
For changes between 2.0.3 and 2.1:
Configuration file diff, to make it easier to update an old configuration file to the latest version. Use this to see changes between the versions. Or just use the latest configuration file, which comes with the mod.

— Fixed a issue with the game music volume which for some reason freezes when beep sounds are loaded. Now sounds are only loaded when needed and the music volume is then a few seconds later unfrozen again.
— Using beep as notification signal sound source, fob and/or animation will now add a small delay between the key press and when the vehicle is affected. This is done to add to the realism but also because the sounds needs to be loaded. If none of above is used, pressing lock/unlock will affect the vehicle immediately.
— Fob sound is no longer heard when inside the vehicle. This is because it would be in conflict with the game’s music volume.
