I think those warning lights will clear after starting/stopping the car a few times. If not disconnect the battery for 10 minutes then reconnect. I've seen this happen when putting a BMW on a dyno and the lights cleared themselves.

If the clicking is not wheel/brake related I would guess you have a problem with the driveshaft or rear diff. Have the driveshaft centre bearing checked and also the guibo which are both very common wear items. It could also be the CV joint on the driveshaft (rare) or CV joint on the output shafts - common but tend to click only when turning.

See #2, #8 and #17 in this diagram.
