I accidently put another key in my ignition of my 2001hyundai accent and now my key won't start the car

Do you mean that after you removed the wrong key your original key wont go in, or do you mean using your original key and turning the starter it wont start or even turn the ignition on. If you tried to turn the ignition switch with the wrong key, sometime it will cause the lock to turn freely as an anti theft measure. You should be able to find the way to fix this in the user manual that comes with the car.

Every morning my battery flat on my 2005 ford ranger it is a new battery the alternator is working fine

Some circuit is draining the battery after you turn off the ignition. To identify the circuit with the high draw hook up an ammeter to the battery with ignition off and then pull fuses one by one until the draw goes down to zero. That will identify the circuit responsible. Then check out all of the components in that line to get to the issue.

Could be some relay that is stuck in the on position and will not turn off when the key is removed.

2002 chev surburban switch won,t turn

If the ignition switch is jammed, and you cannot free it by moving the steering wheel back and forth while trying the ignition switch, simply replace the ignition switch tumbler and lock assembly with a new one. Before going to the trouble of replacing the entire ignition switch, try squiring a moderate amount of WD-40 or other light penetrating oil into the ignition switch key hole, let it sit overnight, then try again the next morning. Often, that will clear the issue.

My igntion is lock on my 2010 hyundai sonta and i have tried both keys

Are you able to turn the steering wheel any? It may only turn a little, but that should be enough. Try turning the steering wheel to the left and holding it there tightly while turning your ignition key. If it doesn't work, try turning the steering wheel to the right and holding it there tightly while turning the ignition key. If that doesn't work, try wiggling the steering wheel by turning it back and forth while trying to turn the ignition key. If it still doesn't allow the key to turn, try activating the shift lock release and shifting the car into neutral. Do this by prying open the small square plastic cover next to the shift lever. With the cover removed, apply the brake with your foot and insert a small screwdriver or bic pen into the hole. Push down and move the shift lever to neutral while holding the shift release down. Remove the pen/screwdriver and replace cover. Now try turning the ignition switch. That should work, but if it doesn't let me know and we'll go from there. a48afaae-b675-4190-9e1b-0a8be3ea56d9.png

2010 Ford fusion I left the parking lights on overnight and find battery dead the next morning. I charged battery overnight, but still could not start engine. When key is turned it displays the battery...

Well contact your dealer and tell them that your battery is gone bad for no reason and don't mention you let the light overnight because your battery is under warranty and they will put in a new one. Good luck
