Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For some reason my Jetta isn't starting. My husband and his brother put in a new starter  cause the old one was
bad i guess. They bi passed the starter and the car started but it wont start by turning the key. Starter relay works
and ignition relay work they both click from what my husband said. What can be the problem?

Possibly a faulty ignition switch?
