    Here is the info from Chrysler. This is an odd code, did you have any issues with the engine overheating?

    Trouble Code: P1299 3.9L V8
    Cylinder Head Over-Temperature Protection Active
    Trouble Code Conditions:
    Engine started, and after a period of time with the engine running, the PCM detected the engine was in an overheated condition.
    Note: The PCM enables the Fail-Safe Cooling whenever this code is set to cool the engine.
    Possible Causes:
    * Cooling system has a problem
    * Engine coolant level is too low
    * A Base Engine problem may be present
    1. Check coolant level.
    * If the coolant level is correct, perform a Cooling System diagnosis.
    * If the coolant level is not correct, check cooling system for loss of engine coolant.

    A shop would check the coolant level and condition, check for proper thermostat and cooling fan operation and check all the hoses, water pump and radiator condition. Perform a pressure check and look for any leaks.
