Question about 1997 Kia Sportage
It may be possible that there is a significant vacuum leak. Check all of the vacuum hoses for cracks or disconnection, or possible connection to the wrong sites.

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.

It sounds like the timing is not set correctly. When you installed the timing belt, there are two dots on the crank shaft and cam shaft sprockets - these two dots need to line up as close to eachother as possible. This is done by putting the belt on the two sprockets while both dots face eachother - lay them down on a table or flat (clean) surface with both dots facing eachother (crank shaft sprocket dot should be facing up, and cam shaft sprocket dot should be facing down) - carefully insert the sprockets onto the cam shaft and crankshaft simultaneously - this usually takes some finess and patients - once they are in place and you are confident they are lined up, you can put the coverback on. Also, make sure (first) that the number one cylinder is at TDC (top dead center, or in the "up" position. Pull the #1 plug out, manually crank the engine over or "kick" the engine over with the ignition (have someone do it for you). You can use a small screwdriver,inserting into the plug hole (not all the way) and when you see it pop up, poke it in again to feel the piston is at it's maximum height (if you hold the screwdriver on the cylinder and feel the screwdriver / piston go down, bring it back up again.
With it at top dead center, and the two dots facing eachother, put everything back together. Make sure all gaskets are not "bulging" out of the cover. (if applicable) .
If this is all done correctly, the car should start with no problem.
