electrical power loss

Hi guys, I need some assistance please. I experienced a electrical power loss yesterday on my Fortuner.
the alarm, central locking, indicators, electrical windows, ECU indicators for management system suddenly failed.
I was only able to start the Fortuner and drive home, "assume it was in limp mode", when I arrived home after 20kms the engine light came on.

The fortuner has 291000km, 2008 D4D.

What can cause this?

Did some investigation, found the 100Amp fuse in the engine cab was blown.
Does anybody know how to replace this fuse? :S

Be careful.
The fuse blew for a reason.

If the fuse is thermally 'blown ' there may be a wiring short somewhere.
Do some further investigation before just replacing the fuse.

One possible technique:
- If possible find out components are fed from this fuse.
- Disconnect all of theses components
- Replace the fuse
- If it blows again there could be a wiring short circuit
- If it does not blow then start reconnecting each of the disconnected components, one at a time
- If one of these components is faulty the fuse will blow when it's reconnected
