I have a 99 magnum 500 the starter jammed I tried pushing ignition switch and starter got really hot now it won't start with starter and speedometer lights don't work. I can pull start it though but dash lights still won't work I pulled the spark plug out and I get spark under compression when pull start but no spark when push ignition changed solenoid and same problem. Need suggestions thank you

I'm kind of new to these things myself, but sounds like maybe with the starter locked the current got too high and a fuse may have opened up. You have a fuse inline with the small (16-18 guage wire) connected to the battery side of the starter solenoid. I'd check that. Sounds like you also need a new starter. I recently bought one off amazon for $60, includes the bendix drive. Easy to put in.
