I saw an alternator cause this exact symptom and smell on a 6.4 truck once. Shorted out and killed the whole truck, and smelled like it was burnt up. Stick your head in the RH front wheelwell (PUT THE PARKING BRAKE ON FIRST JUST IN CASE) and smell near the opening in the inner fender, see if it smells really burnt right there.
