Default Audi A3 Automatic wont start on first crank but will on second crank - w/VCDS report

Audi A3 Automatic wont start on first crank but will start on second crank - P3053 00 [039] - 50 Short to Ground

Hi, I was wondering if someone could help shed some light on this issue which I am having with my car.
Car: Audi A3 2012 automatic, 2.0L TDI engine (140 ps)
Problem: Car does not start on first crank but will do on the second crank. This issue started occurring randomly and has been doing this for the last 2-3 months. Video showing this https://vid.me/Lyh9
I connected the car up to VCDS today and got the following error message

What do you think could be causing the issue? Any suggestions as to possible fixes. I have had a look around on the net and my research suggests I may need to replace the starter motor relay. But I cannot find a wiring diagram for this. I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks in advance
