Need help with fault code !

I just took over driving my wife's 2000 323i at the beginning of November. The Service engine soon light has come on about every other week on me. It hasn't happened to my wife since it was new. The car runs great, so what does this code P 1624 really mean? My scan tool tells me "security fault", but I do not think so... Any ideas please?

Thanks ! Since it happened, it takes "ages" to warm up the engine to operating temperature.Is it possible ,that this error P1624 is related to faulty thermostat?

That would be highly unlikely... How long does it take to get up to op temp?
