While driving I smelled a hot electric smell. Then my high beams went out. After a couple seconds they came back on. I only used my low beams the rest of the commute to work. The next morning when I went to turn on my headlights the day time running lights go out as I turn the headlight switch on. So, I thought problem solved, (head light switch). This was not the problem. I have already replaced ignition switch due to excessive wear also. Not sure where to look next. Help

I hate to tell you this, based on the amount of work and the expense, but I feel the problem is with the headlight switch/dimmer switch. For all the lights to burn out at the same time would be depressing, at best. Good luck, and I hope you can find a good used one, and a good friend to help you repair this.
Possible some wiring is burning or melting from under the dashboard have it checked again, the smell does it seem like burnt rubber or plastic?
Have it checked since you mentioned that the lights has gone. see the fuses as well just to be sure.
Better get an expert check it to be sure that nothing will be missed on the issue. If it is a wiring issue then the best thing is have the electrical rewired for best results.
even though your reading 13.9 volts at battery at 2000rpms, you need to load the alternator and battery to get a real reading,start car,put high beams,heater blower on high,and flashers on while in low gear,your going to have to have a friend help so you can test at battery with a multi meter.
Soounds like you have a wire problem. Look under your dash at the headlight switch and the connector for any melting....repair as necessary. Look also around the headlight wiring....sounds like you have a wire that is shorting out.
