P1299 - Cylinder Head Over Temperature Protection Active -- indicates an engine overheat condition was detected by the cylinder head temperature ( CHT ) sensor. An FMEM strategy called FAIL - SAFE COOLING was activated to cool the engine - low engine coolant level --- check your coolant reservoir level

Radiator Coolant Level or Low Oil or timing or perhaps a leaking freeze out plug. Any or the failures that can cause a car to overheat should be checked. Sometimes it is two things but then u usually get more than one code.
