my thoughts on this are that you have the car timed on the wrong stroke. a four stroke engine has an intake and an exhaust stroke that if it is timed on the exhaust the crank and cam sensors will not know when to fire the ignition or the injectors they will essentially be firing when the car is trying to excavate the mixture of fuel into the exhaust manifold. double check the timing of the car and go from there. If that is already done then I am assuming that the car has a crank sensor that needs to be gapped correctly into the ring as does the cam sensor. This is a common problem among many makes with these sensors that take the place of traditional timing and distributor.

Try the ignition switch,
For the Crank sensor there is a small metal disc that mounts behind the sensor if that is cracked or dammaged or installed backwards you will get same results as if it wasn't Make sure the timing marks line up on your timing belt. www.kiatechinfo.com

p0560 is system voltage problem. open or short between the battery positive and the ecm.CHECK ALL FUSES. dosnt matter what they are labeled under dash and under hood replace any that are bad and retry to start. no start then check voltage to ecm grounds to. i dont have a wireing diagram to give you but for a small fee or free the dealer can make you a copy.make sure all the wires that go to battery terminals are not corroded and are making good contact [verified with volt meter]. if after all checks ok then replace ecm. as a side note i havent had to change one ever.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help. We will continue to check all fuses and wires."
If I understand you correctly it seems like belt "b" came off. If in deed it came off it is possible that it did som damage to the crank sensor and now since the computer doest have an rpm reference the vehicle won't start. You may have to revisit the work done and make sure everything is in order. Keep in mind this is an interference engine. Meaning that misalignment of the cam and crank or a belt coming off or breaking while everything is in motion will cause internal damage to the engine. Good luck.
