The Kia Sedona computer reads disconnects and broken parts and there are 26 reasons why it will shut down the entire system. The starter still turns over, but the van will not start. I expect one of the essential parts was not reconnected when working on your timing belt. Carefully check all the connections to make sure the components are reconnected. You probably missed one important plugin that is on the list to cause the computer to shut down the system.
Have your battery tested. If the fans ran all morning, too cool down your van it probably killed the battery. Also keep an eye on your temp gauge, and make sure it's not overheating. The temp sensor for the fans could also be faulty ; causing them to run longer than they should when you turn the van off.
I think it might be friction on the tires making the smell. About getting the car out, if you can still open the drivers seat door, and do this... Get it towed! If that doesn't work... Depending on how big the ditch is... Big, Ramp Small, Rent a crane! (I was being sarcastic right there, but it might work! Ask a van expert first though...)
Check the metal part of the heater core lines at the firewall if you can get to them and see if one side is noticeable colder than the other. At least one of them should be hot or you have a bad thermostat. If both are hot than your hot/cold actuator inside is having a problem
Most "common" cause is and engine misfire that causes unburned fuel to enter the converter and overheat/melt the catalyst. The converter is covered by 8yr/80,000 mile warranty for defects, and may be covered thru Kia. On a positive note we have a 2005 sedona shuttle van a work with 250,000 miles on it and qoing strong.
