What is P1624 on a kia sportage & how to fix it?

That code means their is a communication problem between the TCM (Transmission Control Module) and ECM (Electronic Control Module). The issue is normally with the TCM. but it is possible you have wiring problems. I would replace the TCM. It is located to the side of the drivers left foot.

P1624 and p1115

Both codes refer to similar cause. the p1624 is saying that the engine coolant sensor is detecting a temperature lower than is required to open your thermostat even though the thermostat is open. There is a disagreement between what the car is reading as the engine coolant temperature and what you thermostat is responding to. The second code says that the engine coolant sensor is sending occasional higher than expected voltage readings. Both of the these codes together means that it is 90% a sensor issue and that either the sensor is faulty or the wiring to it is shorting occasionally (bad insulation). Find the sensor and wiggle the wires, unplug and plug the connector to it a few times and make sure the contacts are clean. If the problem persists change the sensor and/or wiring. To check the thermostat pop it into a pan of hot water and at about 85C it should open. Take the pan off the heat and as the water cools the thermostat should be seen to quickly close again. It is unlikely to be the thermostat in this case.

Got a code p1624 on my 2000 kia sportage with is it and what does it do.

Per the manual it states: MIL Request Signal from TCM to ECM. Which means there is a signal fault between the Transmission Control Module to the Emission Control Module. If you can, take it to the dealer for repair as they have the parts on hand and are most familiar with their vehicles.
Good luck to you

Start only when gas peddel is pressed codes are P1115 P1624 runs ok

Could be plugged fuel filter, weak fuel pump or fuel pump relay, or the fuel pressure regulator which I would suspect secondly. I would first replace fuel filter since you should every 30,000 miles anyways.
