The P0560 is a fault code indicating a "system voltage malfunction" and will set the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light on the dashboard. This can be a result of a bad battery, charging system, sensor, etc.

Everything you'd want to know about this code can be found here.

Good luck!

Kia engine code p0560

If you are getting this code, go have your charging system checked. it's likely that your alternator is bad, or the belt that drives it, or the battery itself is bad. If you have a battery that is NOT maintenance free make sure the water is filled. P0560 means that the ECU is sensing that the charging system is failing to charge the battery and therefore is providing low voltage throughout the entire vehicle.
