Question about 2000 Saturn SL
Recently my Saturn has a buzzing noise coming from close to the fuse box, no particular time, it does it off and on, every 10 seconds or so, it sounds like some kind of relay is trying to happen. The windshield wipers have always acted possesed coming on and off at will. But this buzzing noise happens even when no heater/AC, wipers, or radio is on.
I have looked online and found some blogs that say it may be the fuel pump relay. Any thoughts?
the fuse box is under the hood driver side, about 12" long and black, the fuses are under the cover. You didn't mention if you had the SL1 or the SL2.

SOURCE: Power door locks going crazy
One of your door lock inside switches are bad.Find the one that doesn't feel right when you push it in either lock or unlock.The internal spring is broke causing the lock relay to keep try to lock or unlock until it gets hot & protects.

the buzzing is most likely the speedo cable ive had a few older cars that do this you might try having someone oil the cable if they can or you can as for the oil light it might be low oil pressure or a bad oil level sensor or even a dirty plug on the sensor

I had the same problem in my LW200. As the other poster indicated a new wiper motor will do the trick. This is an easy fix. Remove the wiper arms, pry up the plastic center cap and remove the nuts holding the arms down then pull them off. A soft prying nudge from underneath will help as they are splined shafts. Raise the hood, put a large deep well socket on over the splined shafts and remove the 2 large nuts holding the trim panel on. Pull up and off the long rubber which runs along the front of the trim panel, watch there is a sharp edge underneath. Now you can gently pull off the trim panel, remembering to lift it over the splined shafts. Mechanism is right there, remove 3 screws and unplug wiring. Take wiper motor off the linkage swap with a new one at advance auto, about 100 bucks, reinstall in reverse order. Note there is a stamping on the linkage telling you where the pivot arm should be for the rest or stopped position and if you ignore that your wipers will be out of whack. While you are in there you may want to change the cabin air filter as well.

it is probably the wiper motor,its building up to much resistance and blowing your fuse
