sound like the starter is bad find the starter and give it a few good whacks then try to start it with the key if it starts it the starter if not it also could be starter or starter relay or corroded wires to the starter

I have a 1981 corolla and have the same problem. The only way my car starts is when it cool or a few seconds after its been turned off. other than that i have to jump start it. it not the starter. i just got a new one.
