electrical issue

Hey guys i' m new here and I apologize if this has already been answered but I couldn't find a thing for it and I searched on the internet everywhere. I have a 98 GT and I was about to go for a cruise at night and after I started it up I went to turn the exterior lights on and not a single one came on. I thought maybe I had a bad headlight switch but then I noticed that my radio wasn't turning on. The only light that was on in the whole car was the airbag light. And I didn't have the airbag light before this problem occured. I tested all of the fuses with a test light and they all checked out fine. So I double checked and got the same results. So for giggles I tested the master fuse and as soon as I touched it with the test light everything kicked right back on. Made absolutely no sense to me. I tested to make sure they were going to stay on and went for a drive. While I was driving the radio and the lights kept clicking on and off and all of the gauges just started going whack. Almost like the car was resetting itself. The airbag light code is code 52 btw. I got back home and shut the car off and restarted it and it happened again. Tested the main fuse again and the lights came on but the radio stayed dead. I've checked every possible place that I can find wires and I even tried replacing light, radio, and other fuses. Would anybody possibly know what is going on with my car?

I'm just spitballing here but I would test the battery and alternator out too.

My Nissan did this until I replaced the master fuse you are referring to. I actually went through 3 in a year
