W203 C-Class 200 Kompresser (electrics)

Seasons Greetings to all.

Firstly a big thank you to the Mercedes forum who helped me identify a faulty break light switch in January and saved me a lot of money.

I drive a Mercedes Benz W203 C-Class Classic C 200 Kompressor and I have recently encountered what I believe to be another electrical problem, as follows:

When I start my engine, the fan immediately kicks in and the electric windows and instrument cluster (inc fuel gauge) do not work!

The weird thing is that whilst my re-set tool (Memoscan OBD11 reader) is plugged into the car, everything returns to normal (until the re-set tool is un-plugged)!

Can someone please advise me what the problem may be?
