Your steering wheel needs to be pulled hard either right or left to turn the key. Tug the steering wheel in one direction hard over and see if key will turn. If not try the other way.

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.

Yaris minor problem after accident/repair, dome light, key and headlight warning sound

Some body in the workshop may have switched the theft deterrent system from active to passive mode during the scanning process.
The theft deterrent system has two arming modes;
Active and Passive. Active arming mode allows the
theft deterrent system to activate normally. Passive
arming mode is used for the servicing. The
intelligent tester allows the theft deterrent system to
switch between Active and Passive.
If the problem persists contact other qualified personnel.

I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage that was in an accident and suffered minor front end damage. Now the ignition key will not return to the off position and therefore the steering wheel won't lock and I...

Did the airbag deploy? I had the same issue with my 1995 Chrysler when it was struck head-on and the airbags deployed. I think it is a feature to make sure that repairs are made correctly.

If you had it repaired, take it back to the repair shop.
