FWIW P1297 indicates EGR SLOW RESPONSE-DECREASING FLOW. The ECM is sensing the EGR flow is less than the requested flow. It is possibly caused by air filter blockage, air restriction (air intake, crankcase vent or turbo related tubes...restrictions, damaged or poor connections), air leakage(dealer has a smoke machine that introduces smoke via the Inlet Pressure Sensor port...after removing the I.P.S. and visually looking for escaping smoke), checking the EGR Cooler and Tubes for excessive carbon buildup, damage, leaks......anything the prevents or restricts proper exhaust gas flow. If everything so far is negative: Replace the EGR Valve. Hopefully yours was a software bug like mine. Good Luck.
I posted this in echo7tangos thread on p20ee again and again etc. Be aware when you do a search for Chrysler p1297 and you came up with a map sensor
response, I think that refers to gas engines(I believe). If this belief is wrong I apologize in advance. The Chrysler code p1297 relating to a diesel is a different problem.
However the above diesel p1297 info is correct.
Also note after the pcm software update the code never came back. Good luck.
