Ride: XH XR6 UTE

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Got a problem with my EL XR6 ute at the moment. Was driving home today when it appeared all my electrics in the car shut off - I mean for a few seconds I lost all my lights, power steering, instrument cluster, with the car running really rough while they flickered off. I pulled over on the freeway and instantly checked my battery leads thinking they may have been loose, but nope they were on good and proper.
Being in the rain and in the dark didnt want to stay parked too long, got in drove a bit more and the same thing happened, this time with the ute appearing to step up a gear while the instrument cluster flicked off and on. The utes in immaculate condition so got me buggered, any help?

A similar thing happened to me, but my entire car shut off, nothing worked.
What I found wrong with it was that it had blown a IGN fuse, so I just took out the fans fuse and placed it in IGN spot.

And now on my XR, when I put the high beams it doesn’t seem to want to work, and I hear some flicking with my amps and stuff, if you understand what I mean.
