Maybe your steering wheel is locked, when you put the key in the ignition did you put your foot on the brake and try turning the steering wheel back and forth hard to unlock it?

thank Tom... found locksmith that specializes on hyundais.... he said it is a common problem with hyundais ... that a small plastic switch (in the ignition lock cylinder area) breaks and small parts fall in the key way that blocks it from turning....took 10 minutes to remove broken switch and the cost was $70..... most others wanted to replace the ignition lock cylinder at $100s of dollars cost and would not have fixed problem.. problem fixed... ignition lock cylinder ok...... I was instructed to turn key with small pliers and a jerk.. worked for me so as to drive car to locksmith.... broken switch is to alarm when keyes are left in car.
