Question about Volkswagen Jetta
First check all battery cables both ends Make sure they are clean and no corrosion. Make sure they are tight. Are the ends in good shape. Sometimes a bad cable will not let enough power but the lights will operate.
If that is ok you may have a bad battery. Yes even new ones go bad sometimes. I would start there before I spend a lot of money checking other things.
Then you can check the charging rate on the alternator as well see if the starter is pulling too much power. Unless you know what you are doing I would advise getting a mechanic to look at it as he should have the needed testers..
Check the ground where it is grounded to and make sure its not rusty at that point as that will make bad contacts as well.
