Hi welcome to just answers my name is ***** ***** when the engine overheats so will the armature inside the starter, this will cause starter binding and will not turn the engine, another possibility is the battery not having enough amperage to crank the engine.

Dodge Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 10 months ago

yes charging the battery for a couple of hours will be a good start , and as to the starter is a possibility it may come back to life after it cools off.

if the starter clicks this means you have power getting to the starter but either the starter is bad or you dont have a good battery.

Dodge Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 10 months ago

Good Morning if the lights dim and instrument panel dims as you try cranking the engine then it has to be the battery not taking a charge have you try another battery, or take that battery to a auto parts store and let them do a load test this will tell you if the battery is ok.
