Car over heating after changing the waterpump, thermostat and radiator.

(2006 Chrysler 300)
We just changed my cars water pump, timing belt and timing belt gasket. The started over heating so I then changed the thermostat and my radiator had a crack so I changed it as well. I just began driving home from my dads and it over heated again. I scanned my car with a OBD scanner and I am getting a ECT sensor or sensor wiring code. I'm not sure if that would cause the car to overheat in less than 6 miles. The car was full of 50/50 coolant when I left.
How long have you had this problem? 2 weeks

Hello, overheating will occur after changing all those components if you do not purge the air out of the cooling system. Air pockets are introduced when you replace these components and must be purged out. Once you do this -- if no further damage has now occurred -- you'll be good.
