You should check the pick-up coil, it can short out the modules. I have ran into this problem before and was a the end of my rope. I found a pamphlet at the auto parts store and read through it and came to the conclusion that the pick-up coil was shot, replaced it and never had to put another module in.

Probably lack of die electric grease under the mounting surface of the module. This special grease keeps the module cool & lack of it could cause the module to overheat & burn out.

Ignition switches and body control modules are issues on these cars.

It would have electronic ignition, no points.

Make sure there is the correct voltage going to the dist. On yours I think you should have about 8 volts not 12. There should be a resistor wire to cut the voltage down.

The 1991 Blazer has a current draw causing the wire to burn. You will need to trace the wiring out to find what is drawing too much current.

The buzzer that lets you know the key is in the ignition in a 1989 Chevy Blazer is in the steering column. To access it you would need to remove the steering wheel with a special tool, or remove the ignition assembly. The key makes contact with a tab that activates the buzzer.

I would guess Financials and HCM are 2 most used modules.

Yes, but I don't know why you would take the HEI / High energy ignition distributor out and replace it with 1 that has points and condenser. That would be a BAD move.

When you take a voltage reading at the coil with ignition on and the ignition points are open you would get the same reading on both + and - .

It could be a weak battery or a bad ignition coil.

You would have to drill out the center of the lock or have a locksmith pick the lock.
