I have a 04 Jetta GLI with 66k miles. Timing belt broke. I rebuilt the head and replace all of the timing parts. I aligned all of the timing marks, the cam chain has 16 rollers in between the the timing marks. The timing marks on the cams timing marks arn't exactly on the arrows but they are as close as I can get them. Both of them are with in the key way on the cam sprockets (timing marks). When I turn the key eveything moves but no fire. When I turn the engine over it sound weak.
I read the fault code and I got a ecm/pcm power control power relay fault. The same code I was getting when I broke the timing belt originally. I cleared the fault and it came back.
I'm thinking its timing but all of the marks are lined up so I'm out of ideas.
'00 Beetle, 1.8t T3S60, Brute Rods, Supertech Valve train (stock cam shafts for now), port and polished small port head, custom FMIC (pain in the a** on a Bug!), Bosch 440cc injectors, 3.5FPR, Catch Can, 2.0 Coils with Iridiums, Wilwood BBK, too much other stuff to list, too much $$ spent.

All the grounds and connectors look good. I hooked up and battery with 12.86 vdc and it still sounded sluggish. I removed the accessories belt and it was a little faster but still doesn't sound fast enough to crank.
Check all your grounds, fuses, and important points such as the coil pack 12V reference, injector 12V reference, etc. Post up your full diagnostic details here so we can go through it.ecm/pcm power control power relay fault
The 409 relay could be an issue here. I'd suggest swapping in a friend's 409 and see if that fixes it...or go buy one and see if that helps.
Sorry it took so long for me to get back, I was out of town for a while. I discovered that the starter that I changed when I was originally troubleshooting was the wrong one. Auto Zone sold me a 5 speed transmission starter. Got the 6 speed tranny starter, cranked right up! Thanks for the help!
