We ask you fill out the "cp" section about yourself so we can base our answers on your location, year, engine type (gas/diesel), weather. As a mod I see you are around Winnipeg, Manitoba. Canada...so that's a start. Pretty common is problems with wiring corrosion. Ground wire from battery to frame of car or more common the wiring from the positive terminal of the battery to the under hood fuse box, Check UNDER the fuse box for corroded connections. The code P0560 relates to "system voltage problem" meaning "probably" low voltage going to the ECM (engine control module). The ECM cannot/will not operate with low battery voltage. A corroded connection will act like a resistor in a circuit and low voltage may result. These can be very intermittent and cause all kinds of problems. If you find bad connections from corrosion you will need to clean off the oxidation and then apply silicon grease (get at auto parts store) to keep the oxidation from re-occurring.
Be sure to check the ground wires from the ECM to the body/frame of the car. They can be located under the sloped section of the front carpet/mats and/or behind the foot kick panels.
Good Luck and keep us posted on what you find.
