My daughter overheated her/our 08 Commander. Now it won't start (at all - nothing). Other electrical problems were triggered - windows won't go up or down - can't even get my code reader to connect so that i can read codes.

I'm going to try the computer reset procedure I've read about here, but if there is any other things I should try - I would greatly appreciate it.

I'm discouraged because a mechanic that I respect told me these engines are weak and overheating can easily destroy them.

Not knowing what engine you have, The Hemi has a problem dropping valves when overheated. Search box above put "dropped valve" there are many posts about it.
How is the battery? Check ALL of the fuses?
