You probably accidentally hit the automatic car starter…. well, assuming you have one. When I got my toyota matrix, it started on it’s own. I didn’t even realize there was an automatic car starter in it. If you don’t have one I would take it to the garage asap.

@Creiddylad:  Mine too. It came with a black plain one (like in the manual) and another one with a little lightning boltt thing on it. I never pressed it, and they never told me it had an automatic starter. I pressed it by accident and BOOM it roared to life. I also figured out I can’t turn the engine off with the key one I pressed it, I had to use the remote again. (Ugh, I could not have felt dumber). Try pressing thr mystery button and see what happens?

@Creiddylad:  Jeez IDK. Matrix and Corolla are very similar from what I know. Corolla is a sedan, mine is a hatchback. I have a Matrix se or xe or something. It has sunroof, power locks, windows etc etc. It sounds like the last owner added some fun stuff. It could be something crossed with the electrical if he/she DIY’d it. 

I vote for freestyle button mashing later 😀
