Hello, my name is***** the truck keeps blowing modules start by replacing the wiring that comes from the module. The wiring begins to have high internal resistance which causes the module to overheat. I would do this first as the only other common issue is the distributor itself. When it begins to fail it causes the module to fail. Also, make sure that you use the dielectric grease on the back side of the module which is what cools it. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.
