The relay will be located in the under-hood fuse box. It could be on the driver or passenger side of the car. Remove the cover, turn it over and you will see a diagram of the fuse and relay lay out.
Below is the starter circuit for your Corolla if you need to investigate further.
Good luck, let me know.

Where is the starter relay located for my 2003 Toyota Corolla?

Why do think its a relay??
if it is a single click or sometimes no click noise when turning the key it is the starter itself.
If it is a repetitive click it could only be the battery.
If you hear a click, this is the relay you are asking about, however it is extremely rare for a Toyota.
Please have someone help you with the next step. Get a long metal rod or long pry bar about 2' long and a hammer.
Locate the starter, it will be on the driver side of a left hand drive vehicle between the engine and the transmission.
Set one end of the rod on the body of the starter and tap the other end firmly with the hammer. You don't have to kill it. At the same time as you do this, your helper will be in the car holding the key in the fully start position, don't touch the gas as it may flood the motor.
in mant cases this may start the car.
If you live in a cold climate where they use salt on the roads, there is a small chance there could be a bad ground to the starter but only a 2% chance of this.
of you are handy and can remove the starter yourself, you should check the starter contacts inside the starter.
these copper contacts are usually the only thing that wear on a Toyota reduction type starter. And are not vert difficult to replace if you are comfortable with this level of technical expertise.
Or you can order a new starter from your Toyota dealer as you already know the last one was good for 11 years and they usually have a less expensive rebuilt starter available for your corolla.

Where is the starter relay?

It took me a good while to find it on my corolla. You have to remove the panel for the dome light to the left of the steering wheel and you will see some relays.
It's relay A on page 3

I have A 2003 toyota Corolla with a no start problem. It wont turn over, so i checked the battery, the starter, the alternator, the starter relay, the neutral safety switch, and replaced the ignition...

you need to see how far the power is getting through the circuit. you will need a volt meter and maybe a friend to help. so start at the small wire on the starter. this should have power when you turn the ignition key. no power? then move to starter relay, no power? then move to neutral safety switch, still no power? ignition switch and fuse or fusable link or fuse box connection, wire connections. just approach it like water flowing though a pipe- but somewhere on the pipe there is a break in the pipe (circuit).

You can jump relays or switches just to prove to yourself that the starter can turn over.

Where is the starter for a 2003 toyota corolla located? Thanks!

Standing in front of your Corolla with the hood open ,the starter is located right below the intake manifold(curvy tube like looking ) This is in the center of the engine.
A plastic water guard underneath the car prevents you from seeing the starter from below.
That water shield will need to be removed to access the starter.

You need a test light or volt meter to verify.should have voltage on the wire to the solenoid while trying to stsrt veh. Usually it is the starter they use a gear reduction on your's i think ans they are common for burning the contacts in the solenoid.

I need to replace the starter solenoid on a 2003 ford taurus

The starter solenoid is attached to the starter unlike the older Fords. You will have to remove the splash guard to gain access to the starter. It is located on the front side of the motor.
