SOURCE: 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.

p1115 is a coolant temperature signal from ECM to TCM. p1624 is MIL request from ECM to TCM. Did the vehicle overheat? If so check the temperature sensor and the thermostat. Some vehicles will overheat and shut the engine off until the computer is reset. But with both codes involving the same computer modules the best bet might be to rescan the computer and reset it. Both modules might need to be changed.

Code number p1624 is MIL Request Signal from TCM to ECM. which means malfunction indication light(MIL) is requesting a signal from your engine control module(ECM) or Transmission control module(TCM) i would reccomend u take it to the dealership to get it checked out.
