Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If you do get a click from the starter and the starter is good then the problem may be the battery, a cable or connection issue, or the engine may be physically unable to turn.

Have you tried turning the engine using a socket on the crank damper bolt?

Ok, sorry for delay been busy, i do get a click from the starter. But it wont turn over. We have replaced all relays and i put a new starter on. Battery has been tested and charged. I do not know where that bolt is ?
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

The crank damper bolt is in the center of the damper. The crank damper is the large pulley mounted on the front of the crankshaft.

is there a way to get to it with out taking everything off of the engine?
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

Through the right wheel well.

Ok, also it will not come out of park into neutral or anything.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

You're probably not pressing the brake hard enough because the vacuum in the brake booster is depleted.

I have a quick question, what would cause the engine to cease? If that is what it is?
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

Liquid in one or more cylinders or mechanical failure in the bottom end.

Oh wow, i really hope it isnt that. Are the calibers known for that?
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 2 months ago

No.
