Headlights have two filaments; one for low beams and one for high beams. There is a good chance that the low beams are burnt out. This doesn't necessarily mean that the high beams won't work. However, it's not too common for both low beams to burn out at the same time. Of course, it could be a fluke. I would replace the headlights with new ones and then go from there.

99 Pontiac sunfire no low beams no day light's high beams work fine?

Hmmm.... it seems unlikely that both low beam elements would fail at the same time, but it's possible. Replacing the headlight lamps is cheap and easy and would be my first attempt at fixing the problem. Is your DRL indicator on the dash flashing? They'll do that when the lamp(s) burn out. Since the DRL's AND the low beams don't work, I wouldn't suspect the headlight switch, however this is not beyond the realm of reason.
