Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
Even when the key is not in the ignition - this happens about every 2 months but mechanic cannot locate the problem - once the car is jumped off it runs fine
He sounds , not too good.
here is a check list.
1: fuses all good, check them.
2: battery always at 12.6vdc rested 4hrs or overnight.
no?, then you have a bad battery ! or phantom drain .
3: start car, battery voltage at 13.3v to 15v, if not charge system is kaput. (note i didnt say a part bad)
one of those. is bad.
the charge lamp must be on , key on, then go off running, is it?
if you have phantom drain, here is the test.
or also called dark current
did you look at car in total darkness yet, BINGO.? (every inch)

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

I have a 95 camry 2.2 and it did the same thing. i helped jump a buddy's car then the horn started sounding. so i called the parts service for toyota they told me theres a switch under your dash, on the floor board, right above where the left is placed. there was a switch, he told me to flip it then my car started working no problem. that was about 1 yr 1/2 ago.

SOURCE: 1999 Toyota Corolla CE.
I had the same problem with my 99 corolla. It was the solenoid contacts in the starter...they were worn down and didn't either get enough contact or sometimes kind of melt togther (that's why starter spins even after you turn off car and key). Got new contacts and car starts like new!
