I had this with my truck in the interior cabin. It was caused from a control box or panel for the heated and cooled seats which finally burnt out.

One test you can try.... Keep re circulation on during the ride, make sure it stays on. This will help you determine if the smell is entering in from outside or the engine compartment. Had some work done on a DTS, and the stealer ship crew let some pieces of the plastic wire loom cover come in contact with the hot engine... It will not melt easily, but will let off a strange smell, it's hard to spot but look for it....
