Fully charge battery remove and take to a shop, bench test the battery. If its not the battery remove the starter and bench test it, its either the battery or the starter.

When you say it wont start, it wont crank even a little bit? any clicking? i would look for an issue with the starter if the wires are getting hot, you could have a corroded ground wire which would cause a backup of electricity making the wire hot(simply put)

Is it just clicking, like the battery is dead? Will it turn over fast, with the spark plugs removed?
I would try using jumper cables, and try giving the starter a better ground -. Clamp to starter housing and negative side of battery. (NOT + TERMINAL) .
If these make no difference, I would buy a NEW starter.

New starter new battery still wont start last


Very likely the new battery is defective - it happens. If you have a know good new battery, then also connect a jumper from the battery negative to the block just to be sure its not a defective or loose ground cable.

ENGINE CRANKS BUT WONT TURN OVER


you meant its a NO CRANK engine.
silent starter, say the word silent.
even the starter relay must click.
and if head lamps die, so will be the starter.
due to a dead battery,
sounds like a bad battery to me. dead or only
DISCHARGED.
if the Charge/battery lamp is off in the cluster driving. its ok. the alternator.

starter car with the jumper cables connected
and not next day.
only live jumps matter. or you go know where.
if you want to walmart they have tool there that
tests the alternator
battery
and for phantom drains all in 6 min work, the tool does all the work.

if the battery is charged, it will crank I bet
its discharging.
for 1 of 3 reasons.
1: its bad.
2: the charge system is dead.
3: phantom drains, it goes dead as you sleep
the head lamps dead is the big clue there.
