There is a recall on the 2001 Malibu blinkers. I'm not sure exactly what had to be fixed but my Malibu was having the same problems but seem to work fine now.

There is a recall on just about every late 90's to early 2000's Malibu. Even my 2000 Grand Am has the same recall!

If I run the AC they seem to work again.It's weird

It is probably a bad emergency light button. The blinkers are wired through it, so when it starts going out so will the blinkers. Its about $25 and takes 5 min to change.

What is a blinkered pony?

* A blinkered pony/horse would be a pony/horse that is wearing blinkers. Blinkers are peices of material, usually leather or plastic, that attaches to the bridle, near they eyes. Blinkers limit the horses range of vision to only what is in front of them. It is most commonly seen on carriage horses and race horses. They help keep the horse focused, instead of worrying about what is all around them.

What is the danger of blinkers?

The very factor to put blinkers on your horse for safety is why they can be a danger. The point of blinkers is to keep the horse's focus on whats in front of him. And in the right circumstances they keep the horse going forward. But it also means he can't see to either side of him. If your not careful he may spook badly from a noise he couldn't see. I would only use them in very structured environments.
