IF a Vaccume hose comes off OR is bad going 2 the DASH Controls that will happen OR a bad Actuator or Actuator door (stuck) will cause that.Make sure the vaccume Canister is not cracked (if it hs one) Usally it's a very small Vaccume line(hose) that causes the Problem. You either have a vacuum leak in the heater control system, or a cable that has come off of its control panel...
when the defroster is turned on, it activates the a/c compressor. the clutch may be locking up on the compressor.
I have a 95 saturn and it cost an average of 300 dollars to get the windshield replaced.

about two fiddy
IIRC its in the underhood fuse box
It is connected to the washer tank.
My answer would be to take it to a professional. Contact your insurance carrier. If you have Comprehensive coverage, the windshield will more than likely be replaced at no cost to you. Replacing a windshield is not a DIY job.
If the windshield wipers are beyond repair, they may be replaced. If they are only slightly damaged, they can be fixed such as gluing the rubber attachment.
The 2000 Saturn does not have a distributor. Instead it uses a "coil pack" system.
If you are like the rest of us and have broken plastic mounts, see "How you do you repair the windshield wiper assembly in a 2003 Saturn Ion?"
IIRC inside the cabin behind the passenger kick panel
Right next to the windshield washer reservoir.
