Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
Alternator changed last year. Starter a few years ago
Look for the starter(up top sitting over transmission) and have someone hit it (not too hard)with a hammer while key is held in the crank position,if car starts you will have to ck connections at starter ,if ok you need another starter,reman starters of any age are never as good as the originals,just not cost effective to buy brand new,too expensive!

You may need to pull the starter,alot of times when they remanufacture a starter they just do a basic test on the solenoid and if it checks they don't replace it.Toyota starters use a bell shaped copper contact that is prone to wear and corrosion,I drive a Toyota myself and had this exact problem.

Sounds like a fuseable link burned out. If the battery was not disconected while the alternator was being replaced this could have happened. It could have also happened if jumper cables were momentarly hooked up wrong.

Check for loose battery terminals. Car will not start without jump because battery is not connected properly. Starter is probably good or car would not start with or without jump. If alternator is bad and not producing current, car would die after running a short while as battery would out of juice and without alternator current the car would die - so probably alternator is good. If connections are all good, get a voltmeter and test the battery voltage - it should be over 12.75 volts. If not, battery is not holding charge.

G'day mate it a typical lack of power , check again the conections also to the starter and the earth return leads to the body from the engine also is there a small residual drain from the battery this can be checked with a small amp meter, with the inhibitor switch problem maybe the linkage to box is getting worn and not going completely into park

Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.
Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.
if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -
