The code P1294 means that the computer is setting a target for the engine to idle at and the engine cannot do it therefore setting the DTC. Solution start by checking or replacing the sparkplugs. Also remove the idler motor from the throttle body and spray it out with carb cleaner. Also spray out the passages in the throttle body that the idle motor use. If that does not fix it you could have another problem like a bad idle motor or something relating to that circuit. Did you replace the TB or make an adjustment to the TPS?

P1294 verbiage is simply "Target Idle Not Reached (+/-200 RPM)" which unfortunately is one of the DTC's that is least helpful. The most likely cause of this is a simple vacuum leak, very possible a leaking gasket at the base of the throttle body. What happens is unmetered air enters the engine confusing the PCM, forcing the IAC to chase the idle speed up and down. The first thing you should do is look under the hood and verify that all of the vacuum hoses are connected and in good shape, the brake booster isn't leaking and finally get a can of carb cleaner and go hunting for a leak. If you haven't done this before I recommend letting someone who is comfortable with the procedure do it for you or show you how.
