2006 Toyota Camry - Won't start

I started my car when it was already running and now it won’t start at all. It doesn’t even run at all when I ignite the engine it just puts out immediately. What is wrong and how can I fix it?

Let me try to translate: your car was running, you turned the key to the start position (for how long)? The car kept running. When you turned it off it would not start. It would turn over but would only run for a very short time, then die. Please correct any parts of my translation, and maybe we can help.

Car was running, I tried to start the car holding the turned key for about 1 second but it didn’t make any sound or run at all. It just immediately stopped. I turned off the engine and tried to restart and it immediately stopped again it didn’t run for any amount of time.

I think the mechanics here might say you damaged the starter when you “started” it again while running.
