When you say they quit working, do you mean that the outside lights light up but don't flash??? or that the outside lights don't light up by either the hazard or turn signal switch?
There are two fuses as part of this circuitry, the 7.5A Turn, and the 10 A Flasher. Both of those feed the hazard warning switch. After the hazard warning switch, power is fed to the Flasher. The flasher then feeds the turn signal switch.
So problem could be the fuses, the hazard switch, or the flasher.
The flasher is down under the dash, on the left. It's NOT in the fuse box under the dash by your left knee.

They don't light up or flash. The hazard doesn't work either. I presume it's the same lights, right?
So how how I get to the flasher on the left? Should I remove the panel under there?

Great! Thanks! I'll try it! So, just to make sure...to get to it...I should remove the panel under the steering column? Or how do I get to this area?
Let you know how it goes.

I have been searching for an answer to a perplexing car problem(s) with my '93 Camry.
1. My headlights started flickering on and off, eventually stopped working. When he left turn signal is used they turn on - a right signal turns them on. Either way they don't stay on for long.
2. The brights work but only if I hold the lever down; leaving them on they work the same as the regular lights.
3. My entire car shut down while I was driving; I couldn't turn it back on or shift into neutral so it could be pushed into a local gas station. Then it turned back on and I'm not sure why.
Please help me figure out what's wrong - I don't know if my fuses are overheating or relays or something. I'd like to figure it out so I can fix it at home - anything helps. Thanks!!

Is this a USA vehicle, or Canadian vehicle? Electrically they are different in this headlight area.
Do I understand your high beam situation correctly. When you hit the 'flash' function the high beams will come on, but normally they won't stay in the on position.
When you turn your headlights on and get them working....do you have taillights at the same time that the headlights are on?

You haven't responded and I'll be out for a number of days, so let me give you some additional info.
If I assume that you are a USA vehicle and not Canada, and assume that your taillights do work when your lights are on, and assume that you are able to flash your high beams, then your problem would be either your light control switch is bad, or the integration relay.
There are additional tests that should be performed with a meter to definitively prove before you tear into your steering wheel.
