For anyone that stumbles across this topic in the future here's the answers I found out.
For this car the P1441 error code dealt with a computer software update which is done free @ a pontiac dealership, but is not an actual recall because it does not deal with safety. Didn't make a bunch of sense to me, but after the software update (15-20 minutes) it was good to go.
The sound from the blinker was the hazard switch just above the radio. $30 switch, took me maybe 15 minutes to change it out. It could also be the blinker control switch on the column, lucky mine wasn't cause the entire column has to be torn apart to replace that.
