03 Passat 1.8T won't start

So my 03 passat randomly wouldn't start. When you try to start the car, it just clicks once. It wont even try to start. My husband replaced the starter, checked the battery and no luck it still won't start. Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas of what it could be?

    Our 1.8T 03 had problem with crank position sensor.
    It would turn without starting as if there is no fuel.

    Message number 1 is reporting an entirely different problem than message number 2. One click is a sign of a dead battery OR not enough electricity getting to the starter.

    If you're sure the battery is good, and the same for the starter, then you need to start checking the cables, and the connections.
