You have to start with some good old fashioned troubleshooting. Is the engine turning over (cranking)? If Yes, the battery and starter are good. Does it have spark? Pull a plug wire and test. If not, you have an ignition system problem. Does it have fuel? Starting fluid is the easiest way to check (remove air filter and spray a bit in to see if it starts). Does it have timing or compression? Could be a broken timing belt.

Definitely try the starting fluid test first. Also ignition control module in the steering columns are a common Chrysler dodge issue over time they get hot and burn out.
