Keyless start / stop button

I don't drive the car so much now and my wife was saying today that she sometimes has to press the button more than once to either start or stop the car.
Tried it myself today and it doesn't feel as positive as I remember it.
Anyone else had similar issues?
Warranty ran out three weeks ago :(

Any info learned from this issue? What was it? What did it cost to repair/replace? I am having this exact issue now.
There were some other topics in the forum about this it was suggested to purchase the new part, or to clean the contacts.

I purchased this part # 5G1-959-839-A-3Q7.

Mind you the part number may change for car application. I have a 15 Mk7 GTI

Mine is still the same so will get it looked at when it goes in for the next service.
One other thing is that I don't always get the engine starting message on the dash.
Think it always comes up on a cold start, with glow plugs, but not when the engine is warm
Car is a '16 GTD
