    As shown in the video, issue happens with mods and base game content (later in the video I deactivate all mods, reload the vehicle as well as lua).

    How to replicate the issue:
    1.Spawn a few vehicles with custom inputs, for example a pickup and a van.
    2. Tab to one of them, let's say a pickup truck
    3. Go into the Controls menu, vehicle specific controls and change the binding to the tailgate - Tailgate in the pickup works correctly, you can do whatever you want, tab between the vehicles and it will continue working
    4. Now, tab to the van and change the cargo doors control (don't touch the pickup's tailgate one), Apply it and tab to the pickup - Pickup's tailgate control got reset and you need to assign it again.

    My Observations regarding the bug:
    You can avoid it if you prepare your inputs before you spawn other vehicles, just pick one vehicle at a time and change controls to your liking.
    You can also avoid it if you set all the controls you want for all the vehicles you have spawned up at once (without tabbing, it works but its fairly annoying)

    Possible ways of fixing the issue:
    Fix the loading of the controls to the menu ( as you can see in the video, when I tab between the vehicles the controls I set for the previous vehicle disappear, which may make the game think I've removed the binding and when I apply the change to a control, it also updates the controls file to whats currently in the menu (that is removes the bindings)

    I hope I gave a description detailed enough, for the issue to be found.

    Also, in that video you can see that after few vehicle changes and reloads the toolbar on the left kinda stopped working partially, some of the icons disappeared
