Default No gauges, tach, speedometer

Got into my truck today and noticed an electrical smell in the cab. Couldn't see anything, truck started fine, moved it and when I was going to turn it off it would not turn off with the key. Checked the fuses by driver door and all where fine. pulled out the 10 amp for the ignition and then could turn it off. Starts and turns off without this fuse being in there but none of the gauges work. Thoughts or Ideas??? Thanks Dave

Oh, this is going to be a challenge..... What happens if you put the fuse back in? Is the electrical smell still there? If it is is there an area that it is stronger smelling? You can access a lot of the interior electrical by pulling the knee bolster so you can inspect it. Look for any signs of it getting warm, discoloration, chafing, etc.
