Question about Saturn SL2
SOURCE: headlights wont work
Well...lets start with the obvious. Check fuses and NEVER piggyback any stereo or security stuff into their fuses...you dont want the lights to shut down during a night drive!!
Check under the hood for a relay center...also has some fuses there as well.
The Daytime Running Lamps are a "straight through wiring configuration". Doubt it even goes through a headlight switch at all.
But the regular lights do.
Unless you've worked on the front of the car and forgot to plug the headlights back in, do this...
Turn the light switch on...looking at the instrument cluster , can you make the high-beam-indicator light come on?
As you rotate the headlight switch knob...does the instrument panel lights brighten or dim? You probably have a faulty headlight switch...auto stores have them...they simply plug in.

SOURCE: no headlights
A bad headlight switch is a common problem with these cars. All of the power for the lights goes though this switch. You can try wiggeling the switch with the lights on, if they flash off and on as you move the switch the switch could be the problem.

i had the same problem wit a 97 Sunfire GT. It was the light control switch on the steering whell column. i went to Advanced Auto for the part. I think it was around $35. The lights have worked perfect in all modes every since. hope this helps.

As you described the problem the solution is to replace the headlight bulbs, they have two elements one for normal lighting or low beam and one for high beams. the elements for the low beams are continuously used and are subject to burn sooner.
