I was recently in a small accident. After which the car would not even attempt to crank. I scanned with vag and found the following:

VAG-COM Version: Release 409.1-US

Control Module Part Number: 4B0 906 018 M
Component and/or Version: 1.8L R4/5VT G 0003
Software Coding: 16251
Work Shop Code: WSC 06435
4 Faults Found:
16490 - Manifold / Barometric Pressure Sensor (G71) / (F96): Implausible Signal
P0106 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
18010 - Power Supply Terminal 30: Voltage too Low
P1602 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
17072 - ECM Power Relay Load Circuit: (J271): Open
P0688 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
17931 - Crash Signal from Airbag Controller: Implausible Signal

Disconnect battery hold both cables together for 30 seconds, reconnect and try again.

Don't forget the throttle body adapt before restarting.

also your battery voltage is too low, so put it on a charger

thanks for the input i will let you know the results tommorow

Also Can no engine oil and coolant keep the engine from starting?

I don't plan to run it more than a few seconds i just want to know this engine still has hope.

Yes it can, but I wouldnt with no oil. You could without coolant for a little bit.

For starters, what "minor accident" were you in?

I'd definitely put oil in before cranking - even continious cranking on a dry engine will cause damage over time.

the oil pan is cracked as well the coolant pipes. I have tried a new battery and holding the cables 30 sec.. the drivers side engine bay just makes clicking noise. It seems like the starter is not even trying to turn over the engine. Is there anything else i could try ?

The clicking is probably the starter solenoid. If the starter is clicking but not turning the engine over, first make sure you can turn the engine by hand. Then make sure you have battery voltage at the positive connection on the starter (large cable).
