If you want auto unlock when shifter is moved to need to purchase a GM product.

Sounds like your X5 is working as designed. BMWs (of our generation) do not auto UNLOCK. You have to use the central lock/unlock button on the center console, or pull twice on the door handle.

See info below about auto lock at 5 MPH (I think BMW changed it to 7.5 MPH sometime after 2003 model year)...again, there's no auto UNLOCK. Car & key memory options have to be programmed thru BMW DIS/GT=1 or can be done if you've purchased aftermarket hardware/software:
