Toyota - starting engine while car is already on

Asked by EmLikesCats Jan 06, 2020 at 09:48 PM about the 2019 Toyota Corolla LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive a 2019 Corolla LE CVT.
Today I had gotten in my car, put the key in the
ignition, put my seat belt on, and reached back to
the key to turn the engine on again. There was a
vehicle cleaning the street, which made me think I
had not heard my car start the first time. I heard a
terrible grinding/chugging noise and shut the car
off.
Have I caused any damage to the flex plate? This
car is only one year old. Shouldn’t a 2019 have a
safety feature to prevent this grinding from
happening.
Very stressed. I try and take the absolute best care
of this car.
