I have a 2001 STS that had the same problem - Service Engine light and returned the P0410 code. It ended up being a small rubber hose that had pulled off one of the plastic lines in the secondary air system. In fact, I just fixed this last night.
Pull off the top engine shield (the one covering the motor and the fuel injectors, not the plastic one at the front of the car) and look for loose lines, hoses or wiring.
Also - if you remove the shroud under the engine (you just have to pull out a bunch of plastic retaining plugs) you can get at the lower elements of the SAS. Look for loose lines, hoses or wiring.
You could be fortunate and just have a loose line. Does the caddie run OK?

First thing you have to do is list all the codes, because some some might be stored for a long time. Pushing the OFF and WARM buttons together and holding will ghive you all the stored codes. Then press OFF and HI together to clear all codes. Hold and wait for bars or 0's. Now start your car and let it get up to proper operating temps. Take car for aride that aincludes all phases of driving including highway speeds. Observe SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT for coming on . Assuming it does , repeat steps previously provided, read codes stored and repair accordingly. If need be contact me with new codes and I will try to assist you.

click on the below links for code details.
all of the above codes seem to have a common cause, they all list a bad ecm (computer) as being a cause, and the last code P0601 points specifically to a bad computer. sorry for the bad news, hope this helps.

Check the fuses/circuit breaker for the heated seats, check the switch but most likely it is the pad under the seat cover. This is a high failure item.

P0741....Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off
P0507....Idle Control System RPM Higher Than Expected
that this dealer doesnt have the correct diagnostic software because their code is a generic code as well as the first one ,A GM dealer code would have been P1507 and this code doesnt exist in the GM list of codes ,i think they are both right and need attention but the gearbox code is a fault with the front clutch operating mechanism ,i would advise ripping teh autobox out and fitting a manual gearbox ,lot less hassle
