Yeah dizzy module. Sure you can replace that module without pulling the dizzy out. It wont be detecting that the distributor is spinning.

have you checked to see if the interior light works, check that and the other fuses that does the smartlock side if they all work then distributor/distributor module may be the problem, not sure
