Hi, after overheating, the cylinder head may be cracked or the head gasket blown. There are a couple of things to do to see if this is the problem. First, remove the spark plugs and check them for the presence of coolant inside the cylinders. If any of the plugs are wet with coolant, you will need to remove the cylinder head for repair. If no plugs are wet, run a compression test. You can borrow or rent a compression tester. While all of the plugs are out, simply screw the tester into the spark plug holes one at a time, crank the engine, record the pressure, release the pressure in the gage, and go on to the next cylinder. If the compression is less than 140 psi in any cylinder, you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. Please let me know the results of your test/checks and we can go from there.

Before going for the brain you need to test all the rest. The code you gave me is not correctly read.
The codes are flashed in four groups of blinks. 55 simply means end of code message. Either you have lost some flash at start, or that 3 at the start is code 1-2. In that case the code would be 1-2-5-5.
1-2-5-5 means simply that the battery has been disconnected and is not giving any details on the nature of the problem. In that case the problem must be found testing bit by bit. Eg. : Check if there is spark. If no spark, test distribution. If there is no power to distribution, check the ignition.
If instead the code is 1-3-5-5, check the MAP sensor. A defective MAP sensor will result in incorrect air/fuel mixture, and the engine may not start. The fault is common with Chrysler and Dodge engines from those years.
Here all Dodge fault codes.
