Nope! now you have a no start condition before you can diagnose the overheating condition. I think they might be related. Check for spark, fuel, and compression in the cylinders. If compression is missing, then the engine is toast.

What would cause the headlight switch connector to melt down?

Connectors melt when the wiring is of too small gauge to handle the amperage required, and the copper becomes overheated and burns. Replace any wiring or connectors that appear... crispy with wiring of a slightly larger gauge, and replace any connectors that appear, even slightly, burned.

How to change ncc switch on durango

I will assume you mean the safety nuetral switch cause thats what it sounds like to me to be the problem. The safety nuetral switch is located on the transmission. Before changing it out find it and make sure it didnt come loose if it did all it needs is to be adjusted and retightend. If after adjusting it and tighting and the same problem persist the go ahead and change it out. Make sure the connection is all the way in also.
