Default 2005 Passat TDI Won't Start

Was hoping to get some help with my car 2005 Passat TDI 2.0 240k miles

I was driving home from work and my car shut off when i pulling into my driveway. I then tried to restart and all lights etc turned out when i turned the key like normal but nothing happened when i tried to start it. (no starter turn or clicks) i replaced the starter 2 months ago. I though my battery may be on its way out so i had it tested and it was on its way out.

i bought a new battery and put it in. It got the starter cranking real slow. I then hooked my pickup up to my car battery and it got the starter spinning. The car started but then died 30 seconds later. When it died it sounded like it stalled out like a manual (but its an automatic) it kept doing that.

I checked my fuel pump in the trunk and i can hear it humming when i turn the key and it pumps still just after the car dies then i can hear it shut off. I then replaced the fuel filter. I primed it with fuel and it did the same thing when i started it (no longer needs the truck hooked up to it).

But now it only turns over and doesn't try to start. Any ideas?
