The wiring to the hazard switch is probably going. Taking apart the dash is a pain, so you could just deal with it until it stops working with that trick.

Coolant Level Sensor is probably dirty, you can actually just unplug it and the light will go away. Check the level regularly, or just replace/clean the sensor. It's under the fill cap on the radiator.

It's most likely the hazard switch itself (which contains the flasher module) than the wiring. It's a common problem.

The stalling when locking could be a number of things, but I would start with cleaning the IAC and the throttle body.

+1 on the coolant level sensor, but pulling the dash trim plate out to get to the hazard switch isn't that hard. There's a write-up on it on it here:

Horns, not sure what to tell you. It could be the switch in the steering wheel, the relay, or the horns themselves. I've replaced both horns on my '04 twice, their location down low in the front of the right fender seems to let water and crap get into them way too easily. I've used genuine Delco replacement horns too, and they still go belly-up.

I guess it's different on the Monte? It's a PITA.
