Try turning the steering wheel to one side a little when turning the ignition. The locking mechanism for the key tumbler will not turn if there is eccessive force on it. This can happen if you hit a curb while parking and turning off the car, or if the wheels are turned when shutting of the vehicle. My daughter had the same problem after parking and had to call me to ask me what to do. If that doesn't work there is something wrong with the key tumbler locking mechanism.

Make sure that you car is completly in the park position, if your car is an automatic. The key will not be able to move out of the ignition if for instance something is blocking the shifter.

What does code P1154 mean on a hyundia sontona 2002

You sure that's the right number?
For Hyundai, it shows codes 1151 and 1155, both referring to the electronic throttle system (ETS). I did not find a code P1154.

P1151: ETS Main Accel Position Sensor 2 Malfunction.
P1155: ETS Limp Home Valve.
P1174: Electronic Throttle System #1 Close Malfunction.

Noises coming from th left frontwheel of my 2000 hyundia sonota could this be a hub and bearing noise

What kind of noises are you hearing? Most likely, you need to replace the brakes. It is very unusual for a 10 year old car to have wheel bearing problems, especially on the front wheels.

A squeal when you apply the brakes or a grinding/dragging noise while you are driving are signs that it is time to replace the brakes.
