In general stationary overheating happens when the vehicles electric fan stops working. The could be caused by failure in one or more sensors, relays, or could just be the fan itself, applying 12vlts. D.C. directly to the plug on your fan (watch those hands) can eliminate that possibility.

Why does your 1997 Trans am overheat while idling but not while driving?

If the car is fitted with an electric cooling fan, this may have failed. A car moving will normally get enough air to keep the radiator cool. I have known a water pump to be faulty, where the vanes have become detached this causes lack of flow in the cooling system.
