the next things i would check would be seeing if you have spark from the ignition system , compression in the cylinders by performing a compression test, and checking the timming belt to make sure it has not failed and come out of time.

a cut off switch is almost never the problem just hummor me for a second and please check that the fuel filter is installed correctly not backwards then check the fuel pump fuse and relay if all good check for power at the pump and a good ground if all this is good then the pump need replacement

I've have the same problem with my 2001 kia sportage and found this is a very common problem with this vehical per vehical complaint website. Kia is not sure why this happens and has no fix. If you find something that works please share with rest of us. Good luck :(

Then you have a intermittent spark . Now do you have a spark tester to test spark. Its okay if you dont we have one . Oh by the way you did the fuel pump yourself. if you can do a fuel pump then you can do this to solve the no start problem. No spark tester? okay we will use that tachometer (RPM gauge). crank the engine does the tach meter reads zero at all times while cranking, if it does youll need a crank sensor. Here the story Rough running conditions and or stalling was caused by a faulty crank sensor, try shaking the connector or wiggle the crank connector then see if it starts. Youll need to inspect the connection for proper male to female connection these have been the most suspectable failure of KIA. If you decide to replace this sensor make sure connections are good, more than likely this was the problem and not the fuel pump

You might want to take a look at the fuel pressure regulator. If the diaphram is stuck you wont get the pressure needed to start.
