That sounds very much like a dodgy relay (109) next time you have trouble starting the car look a the small LED light on the drivers door see if it is on or flashing.

Have you checked for fault codes using Vagcom/VCDS

Does the light on the door flash when trying to start the car

The light flashing means there is a problem, it should glow solid for a few seconds then go out.

Immobilizer active can cause this, have you tried using a different key as there may be a problem with the chip in the key.
If there's no power to the engine ecu it will also flash, the ecu is powered by the relay 109 which is what I first suspected as it has been a known issue with solder joints inside, assuming it was a new one you fitted.

What diagnostic scanner did you use as generic scanner only scans the engine ecu
