Answer 1
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 Check: 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. -

Comment 2
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. -
