The TFI module? Use the heat sink paste between the module and the dizzie. and also use it in the socket to keep out moisture. Don't throw it away they can be opened and fixed.

See http://www.therangerstation.com/TFI_Diagnostic.html test as indicated and you will usually find some low cost diode or resistor has failed.
