trans fail safe & other warning lights -HELP!

Hello, I am a bmw noob & own a 2006 bmw x5 4.4l w 100k miles and need some direction or help. After driving approx. 10 miles with everything normal, like clockwork, I get a dashboard full of warning indicators (ABS, BRAKE, DSC) along with the TRANS FAILSAFE message. Also, the speedometer works intermittently or cuts out completely. The entire brake system is brand new as is the battery. Air pressure is correct in the tires. I just had the battery, voltage regulator, & alternator load tested in the last hour at Advanced Auto Parts and everything appeared to be correct. No load 14.5 vs load 14.3. I have read that it could be the ABS module, the DSC module, the wheel speed sensors, etc ... my question is: Am I missing something else it could be? Also, the trans failsafe does not appear in MANUAL mode but the other warning indicators do. The transmission has a slight hiccup from 1st to 2nd gear also. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TY
