Hello! Thank you for your inquiry. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you...
The first thing you need to do in this situation is have the battery and alternator tested. You could also first try charging the battery or see if the vehicle will jump start. If you can get the engine started you can test for alternator output at the jump start posts under the hood. Using a voltmeter connected to the jump start posts the voltmeter should read 13.5 - 14 volts if the alternator is working properly. I would focus on the battery first as you need to ensure the battery is good before attempting anything else. If it won't jump start or the battery won't take a charge then this will most likely be a bad battery. The battery on these is in the left front bumper in front of the driver's front tire.
Please charge and/or test the battery and let me know what you find. Thank you!

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
With all of your symptoms happening together I would first suspect the belt is off. If the belt is off it will overheat because the water pump isn't being turned, it won't charge because the alternator isn't turning.
