"transmission Overheat" light comes on and wont start

My 2007 Jeep Laredo Transmission overheat light comes on (after sitting all night) and wont start. The engine doesn't try to turn over. This isn't the first time this has occurred. In the past, they jeep will start after a few hours of sitting. Any ideas how to fix to start the car? And Yes I have checked all the fluids.

Grand cherokee will not start - transmission overheat

I have the exact same problem. Intermittent. The transmission control module, battery, starter, door locking module have all been replaced. It just did it again yesterday. Will not turn over, transmission overheat coming up on in screen display, door locks not working correctly and I could not trip the alarm. had to be towed to jeep dealership. Any advice?
