Exclamation Car locks and unlocks randomly while driving

I have 2011 E90 and when I drive, the car locks and unlocks randomly. It's so random that even when it unlocks itself, it tries to unlock again or sometimes when it's locked, it tried to lock itself again. So it can't be a bad contact on the center console. It continuously tries to lock and unlock randomly. Sometimes it's just driver's side door, or sometimes it's all the doors. If i'm not running the engine, it's fine. What the heck is going on? I thought it was a ghost initially! It's driving me crazy.

Edit: No one else has my keys. And I'm carrying only one key. The key is inserted into the car. So I can't be pushing on it. This is happening while I'm driving, and when I'm driving only (basically when the engine is on). I sat in my car for 10 mins without the engine on and the car doesn't act up. So it can't be the remote. I even tried my spare one instead. I have to say, this happens EVERY single time I'm driving. Started acting up about a week ago.

Reality: 3rd party has your key[s].

Yup, BMW and prob NSA.

Have you paid all your taxes? Slighted a rude or insensitive government toad/clerk/low level manager? Have connected competitors?

REEKS of psyop....corrosion....

HA! BMW has the key to every vehicle they've made....and the reality is: NSA does have your key data. As inheritor to Nazi Hydra, they're everywhere! They're everywhere?

Do you know of ChickenMan?

Maybe faulty CAS?

Scan the module see if there are any faults.

We had a Mini Cooper do this. Root cause was the micro switch inside the latch mechanism internal to the driver door. We replaced it DIY.
