!994 525i . Car won't crank

Hello everyone I'm new to this forum . But I do subscribe to others . Just tryin to get as much info on this as possible before I dive in tomorrow and start the fix . lol well hopefully
I have a 1994 525i . auto trans . the other morning i was trying to get up a hill after it snowed . I was locked in first gear . spinning tires and all { traction control stopped working shortly after getting the car } . My car stalled and went into trans program . { I am aware of this from previous problem usually i'm fine turning the car off and it goes away } It heated up a bit and radiator overflowed a little coolant , but temp gauge was in normal range . But now my car will not crank . I went and got another vehical thinking it needed a jump ... but nothing . . When I turn the ignition it does not sound like the solenoid is getting anything .All the dash lights come on , radio , interior lights and the lights do not dim when I turn the key . as well i can see the trans lock lift up when I turn the ignition on .
I put a new transmission in the car last year . I'm quite sure the engine did not seize . Please give any ideas

Does it make any type of mechanical noise from under the hood when you turn the key into the crank position? Make sure the shifter is in park or neutral.
