Hi,

The module on the side of the Dizzy is a common failure. I would replace it first, and if it is the Coil, ( possible but would be a rare fault ) at least you will have a spare. The Coils are prone to cracks and then failure in wet weather. The Dizzy module is a common fault, if you replace the whole Dizzy, cheap copies can have a dodgy drive gear and can damage the drive shaft.
