It sounds like your starter solenoid is going bad. You can take the starter off and take it to Autozone and have it tested. But it may test ok, because the problem is intermittent. I would still suggest replacing it. 99 times out of 100 it is the starter solenoid that causes this problem.

Key hot when removed form the ignition

I purchased a 2010 Corolla in Jul\t 2009. For two months, several times, the key was hot when I removed it from the ignition. I was told it was due to the Immobilizer chip in the handle. I'm concerned as it happened again in Sept 2010. and if it does this periodically I feel in time it could cause a dangerous problem as cars have caught fire due to ignition problems. What response did you get from your dealer or how did you sove your problem??
