Hi, whats the issue no crank or crank no fire?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I replaced the starter and battery and get just a solid click when I turn the key
Before I started the work it sounded like the contacts were chattering

And we have a couple key sets

First try the other keys if they won't crank the issue is with the immobilizer ,this will need to be diagosed and repaired by the dealer or someone who has the proper software and equipment
