Hi my name thomas

your car has a broken or faulty neutral switch.
the neutral switch is located under you gear desplay next to the gear shift (t-bar).
the job of the neautral switch is to prevent the car from starting in a drive or a revearse gear which would allow the car to move.
it is a saftey precaution for the driver

hope i could help fix the problem and explain why it is a problem

Car only starts in reverse and only drives in neutral


Sounds like a cable to the transmission is not adjusted up right, and/or the neutral safety switch is not adjusted right, if this applies to your Toyota Corolla.

I think you need to try this in park not neutral-keep your foot on the brake, and put the shifter in park, then try turning the wheel slightly, and turn the ignition key.

The battery is dead. Recharging (or replacing) the battery will remedy those symptoms you describe. Recharging the battery is a lot cheaper if you have access to a charger or can remove the battery and can take it to a service station for recharging.
