It sounds like the ASCM module might have gone bad. I had this problem when I tried to code the ASCM module and that was a mistake. Luckily my X3 was under warranty and was replaced for free.

Update:

Was told today that the valvetronic is probably the culprit and the head will be replaced. Should know by middle of next week if this fixes it.

Still not fixed and unknown what is causing check engine light to come on. Really thinking hard about selling it once it is fixed since the warranty will be up in 5000 miles. :(

I am fairly certain the speed was limited because it did go into limp mode because of the chassis stabilization error.

Your X3 will do the same as your Lexus. It only re-locks the doors if a door is not opened. It will not lock the doors on its own.
