I have 94 toyota camry v6 xle 3.0 i have had this car for 2yrs and haven't had any issues. But one day I was driving and my oil light came on as I was on my way to the store to get oil my car shut off on...

Did you top up the oil? some cars will shut down when the oil light comes on it usualy turns off the fuel pump and is a safey design of the car to stop the engine in a roll over situation and can also save your engine if it runs low on oil.

Car suddenly stopped working

Check the earth lead on the battery and make sure all the battery connections have good contact. the Earth lead of the battery must be a good contact to the car body.

This I would say is the most likely cause. earth wires run to the gearbox aswell. if you lose power then yopu wont get any power steering or brakes etc anyhow.

I just put a new battery in a 1998 Toyoto Rav4. It worked for a week. Now the car want start, but jumps off fine. I was told it might be the battery cables or the connectors. What do you think?

I'm an electrical engineer and the two solutions posted are spot on.
If it jumps and runs ok then all fuses and wiring are ok.
Most likely your alternator is not charging the battery effectivly. A voltmeter applied while it is running will show the charging voltage (if any). So in effect you are running on battery power only until the battery final dies and is recharged. The battery dies when you try to start (heavy amp load) but still has enough energy to handle the running load (much less power than starting).

Ok here is a little trick my dad taught me, turn the key til the battery starts but not the engine, so right before it turns over, do it 12-15 times and then try starting it, if it works then the fuel pump may be bad..
