Is it technically possible to set a timer for central locking so that it locks after 5 minutes, say, after the engine has been turned off? This is to help if you forget to lock your car at night.
Details of any other known solutions are also gratefully received.

An auto-electrician who installs alarms and remote unlocks would probably be able to help.
The cars that do this already generally require you take the key out, too. I know high-end Subarus will re-lock a car within a minute or so if you don't open the door.
