Sounds as if you have a charging problem and you are dealing with a low battery. Yes I understand that the lights are on but your starter demands a lot of amps and if the battery is low you will get the symptom you are describing. I would say a possible bad alternator is the problem but testing needs to be done before you go out and buy parts...

SOURCE: car won't start, battery fine, just hear clicks

Even though the lights work, the battery may still be just short on power to turn the motor over thus the clicking. Try charging the battery or jumping, if you still get a clicking it would be the starter solenoid. Considering the year you may just want to replace the whole starter.

you may of blown a fuse- this can happen if when you jumped it you had the wires backwards - it causes a voltage spike and can blow fuses

It's a fault code connected with the intake manifold.

However, before you rush off and change it, have a look on the Internet. It seems that Kia had problems with this particular error code/or the software. Read about it first. Here's some links:

2011 kia sorento car wont start


First off have the battery tested, just because it has enough juice to light the dash and the radio doesn't mean it has the 100 amps needed to run the engine starter motor. Autozone and others do battery testing for free.
