Yes your ignition module can cause that but before you buy a new one you can take it to your local auto part store and get it test out of the car
there is a machine than can do that

but also a crankshaft position sensor or camshaft sensor can cause the same symptom.

No spark at plugs

can be many things.
but first check spark directly at the coil,
if coil HV output is zero.
then bad dizzy cmp
then bad ignitor
then bad coil
or bad ecu.
there is a test for each, do you have tools?

My break and shifter are working i have to push the release button to put it in gear

like Abbott and Costello, (together ness)
no spark , not fire, no go. (gasoline otto cycle engines.)
no spark to plugs, do you have spark from the coil?
if not coil spark, then bad dizzy or bad ignitor, or bad coil. or fuse.

breaks, you mean brakes? you break your brakes/ ?
release button, ah the A/T tranny park lock out is failing.?
so the engine cranks,
and no spark and the park lock out is dead.
the park , will fail if the ignition power key fails. for spark power.
the release needs 2 thinks, brakes applied and ignition power, this
activate the shifter unlock solenoid.
the fuse is blown, in the cab fuse box. is my guess.

My 1990 Geo Prizm GSI will start, but it won't keep running when the weather is cold.

Sounds like the automatic choke control on the carburator is shot! It is stopping the proper flow of gas from getting to the engine...replace it! Also make sure you have recently replaced the fuel filter; moisture in the gas will stick to the filter and freeze up making it hard for gas to get through!

My 1990 geo prizm will turn over but won't start. I replaced the fuel pump but that didn't solve the problem. Help!!!

Being you replaced the fuel pump and that had no effect I would now check if you have spark if theres no spark check your distributor or coil packs if you have coil packs check the crankshaft position sensor that sensor if its bad could cause a no spark condition...

1994 Geo Prizm LSI running one day won't crank next day

turns over and crank are the same thing,
so you are saying it does crank over but no start,right?
you need to determine if you have at least 50psi of fuel pressure in fuel rail at reed valve.

My girls 1990 Geo Prizm keeps stalling. After it sits for 10 minutes or so, it start back up, but sometimes will only make it a block or two before dying again..It is an intermittant problem, but it...

next time it stalls pull the plug wire from the spark plug. have an extra spark plug with you and stick it in the boot. lay it across a known ground and turn the car over. its probably not firing.. sounds like its an ignition module faulty that acts up when it gets hot

97 geo prizm has fire and fuel wont start

check all your relays with an ohmeter to make sure they all operate. A code would go off usually only if it is an electrical problem. If you are getting fuel and fire, and no codes it is most likely a relay. If you did have codes then I would say sensor. So check those relays
