Its the contacts inside the starter solenoid (in the starter itself)

New contacts are about $10 from toyota and there's 2 of them

But temporariliy you might be able to just clean them up, but usually they sop working because the contacts wear out from arcing so many times that they no longer touch to engage anymore. Or if you can weld Copper, then throw on som weld to make them normal size again and you're good to go.
