Laguna 1999 vreg system lights and wheel shudder

Hi to everyone on the forum ...

I have just bought the Laguna 1.6 non sport edition and
apart from a few problems with system lights that i was made
aware of before buying the car i have also noticed a problem
with the wheel in that it shudders if breaking and anything
over 15mph and becomes quite bad at 70mph.
the two front drop-links have been done as well as ball-joints
to the front of the car on its mot 3 weeks ago and i think
the brakes have also been done recently but not 100% sure
tho the brakes do seem deadly sharp,apart from that theres
a light squeak from the brakes that isn't always apparent.

The other problem is with the system lights for oil and temp
a these are constantly on even from cold start in the morning
and i was told these lights were like this for around two years
but the last quote to have the car put through the computer
at the dealers was £160 and so the last keeper of the car didn't
bother as the car has been well maintained and all oil levels are
fine as well as the temp gauge sits at the halfway mark and doesn't get any higher after the fan kicks in.

Now that i have bought the car,i was thinking of taking the car
to a dealer and have been quoted £69 to have it checked on
the computer,do you think this is worth it,could the sensors
be to fault or possible just a computer reset fix this,could i reset this my self ?

anyway sorry to go on and on
kind regards
