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.

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.

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.
