Sounds like alternator is not charged or battery terminals need a good cleaning.

Right, you should be able to jump start the car, and you can check at the battery when engine is running with a volt meter, there should be 14.5 DCV if the alternator is charging, or just get it checked.

My engine wont even start. I plugged in a computer and no codes was found....

Did you try what Rowefast suggested giving vehicle a jump to see if it starts ?

Yes I have tried that plenty of times and then bought a brand new battery

Well a click usually means the starter is not getting enough juice to turn over. I would look over the wire good from the battery down to the starter. Check the ground cable from the battery to were it is bolted to ground. I know you replaced the starter, but a click also could indicate something wrong with the solenoid on the starter.

Would hitting the starter make it crank. But if it doesnt do that mean the starter is no good.
