Question about Kia Sorento LX
P0700 is a trans code its from the tcm it sends a message to the computer saying that you have a transmission problem and a sensor that is connected to trans is causing a code for example the tps is connected to trans for shift and rpm so it is possible it kept it in memory you need a scanner which can go in to the tcm and check the code if worst unplug battery lets it reset for 15 mins and retry if it lights up again you need to check the code from tcm

there is no adjustment on these tps's it's a drive by wire system. If you don't know the vehicle, dont post!
there's 2 sensors contained in the pedal sensor, and one on the throttle plate shaft, more often than not, it's the pedal sensor, and if you replaced that, it's the other one or a loose connection. did you reset the computer after replacing the pedal?

SOURCE: I've got a 2004 Kia
The code P0700 is described Transmission
Control System Malfunction. Basically what that means is that a malfunction
has been detected in the transmission and associated components. There is good
news and bad news. The good news is it might be covered under warranty. You
didn't say if your vehicle is still under warranty, be aware that you may still
have warranty coverage on this since your car is just 3 years old. The bad news
is that the P0700 code really means that there are transmission-specific
codes that you can't access with a regular code reader. There is a part called
a TCM - transmission control module that works in a similar way to your PCM.
The TCM handles the transmission electrical "stuff" and it stores
further transmission codes.
A P0122 code means that the the car's computer has detected that the TPS (throttle position sensor) is reporting too low a voltage. On some vehicles that lower limit is 0.17 - 0.20 volts (V).
Did you adjust it when you installed it? If the signal value is less than .17V then the PCM sets this code. Could be an open or a short to ground in the signal circuit. Or you may have lost the 5Volt reference voltage. A code P0122 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* TPS not mounted securely
* TPS circuit short to ground or another wire
* Faulty TPS
* Damaged computer (PCM)
Possible Solutions: Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
* Carefully check the throttle position sensor (TPS), wiring connector, and wiring for breaks, etc. Repair or replace as necessary
* Check the voltage at the TPS (refer to a service manual for your vehicle for specific information). If the voltage is too low that is indicative of a problem. Replace if necessary.
* If recently replaced the TPS may need to be adjusted. On some vehicles the installation instructions call for the TPS to be properly aligned or adjusted, consult a repair manual for specifics.
* If there are no symptoms at all, the problem may be intermittent and clearing the code may resolve the issue temporarily. If this is the case then you should definitely check the wiring to be sure it's not rubbing on anything, grounding, etc. The code may come back.
About P1121 - TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) circuit fault between ECM to TCM.
It says in the shop manual that a problem with the TPS can cause this code. And that may be why you have a no start too. Check the electrical connector to the TPS. It's located right on the throttle body. I'll bet you have an open connection right there. You had to either move or remove that connector to change the plugs and install a new cam cover gasket.
Hope this helps to solve it.

The transmission of
a vehicle which has suffered a transmission problem will
send the P0700 code to the vehicle engine control module (ECM)
P0705 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction
- Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit
- Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection
- Misadjusted park/neutral position switch
- Park/neutral position switch may be faulty
P0455. A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the
following has happened:
A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system
P1125 Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) System
P2125 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch "E"
P2138 Throttle possition sensor
