Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla
Actualy if the lights come on in the car and all else works(meaning everything powers up) 99% chance it is the starter contacts, which means you do not need a new starter but replace the contacts in the solenoid. only providing it passes a avr test.

turn on the head lights and while someone watches the head lights try to start the car, do the headlights dim or go off get back to me and we'll go from there

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "i will take out battery and take to autozone to have tested. Thanks"
Sounds like a bad ground. If the battery voltage does not drop when the starter is engaged, the starter is not getting the juice. Check the ground connection again. 90%
