Exclamation '92 F250 - Normal start then dead!

My ultra-reliable 1992 F250 started as usual yesterday morning, but after about 20 seconds abruptly died out (as if a light switch was flicked off). There was no sputtering, no coughing, just a short cutoff. Soon thereafter I could clearly smell what seemed to be overheated wiring in the cab, but nothing in the engine bay. The car has not started since. The starter will turn the engine and a shot or two of starting fluid did not start or sputter the engine. An inspection of the engine bay did not turn up any signs of wiring distress, nor did an evaluation of the truck's fuses. I'm guessing a failure somewhere in the ignition system.

I'm at a loss without a clue where to start troubleshooting. ANY ideas, clues or help with diagnostics would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
