Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
This is a real common problem on the toyota, surprisingly they have had the same problem for years i don't understand why toyota wont change their starter design but i will quite rambling, you need a starter, to be more precise you need a starter solenoid but since you have to remove the starter to replace the solenoid it is about the same price as a rebuilt starer.
let me know if there is any thing else i can do for you.

If you need to start the engine, apply 12V to the small electrical terminal on the starter solenoid to engage the starter. If you have a voltmeter, check for 12V at this terminal when the key is turned to start.
Check you battery cable connections. Power to the starter solenoid comes directly from the battery. Sound like starter go to bad.
Keep us updated.

? - dismantle solenoid and replace copper contact plates and plunger ring (readily available as an inexpensive overhaul kit). Check out the manufacturer name of the starter motor (most probably DENSO) and have the replacement parts ready before continuing (Autozone?). Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Disconnect the wires and cables to the starter motor/ solenoid assembly. Remove the two motor mounting bolts and remove the motor from the car. Remove the bolts holding the end cover from the solenoid. Undo the mount bolts holding the 'L' shaped copper contact plates Take special note of the fitting order of washers etc. Remove the plunger. Reverse the order of the steps above but substituting the parts provided in the 'service kit'. By all means clean the interior but DO NOT lubricate, it only glues dirt to everything. Wire brush any electrical unions prior to reconnecting cables etc. Job should take about 20 minutes to remove, 20 minutes to renew and 20 minutes to reinstall
