Question about 1995 Hyundai Elantra
It's the classic symptom of a failed starter solenoid. This is the electrical switch which uses the small current from the wiring to your ignition switch to turn on the huge current direct from the car battery needed to operate the starter. They don't last forever.
The solenoid is mounted onto your starter motor and to replace it you need to replace the entire starter.
In the meantime, you may be able to get by by giving the solenoid a sharp tap with a hammer either before starting or during starting (assistant required). If you can't get a hammer down there then place a long metal bar or screwdriver against the solenoid and hammer the end of it. This won't fix the fault and won't work indefinitely but it may get you by until you can replace the starter at the soonest opportunity.
