Question about 1992 Buick Regal
This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

I've replaced several ignition modules on different makes and models, never did a reset, and they worked fine.
It may be possible that the problem was something else and not the ignition module? Waiting several hours for everything to cool down, may have helped. Did you have the ignition module tested?
If you do a reset, a few minutes should be plenty.

Tips for a great answer:
If you disconnect your battery, or your battery becomes completely depleted after storage, your immobilizer system will need re-pairing. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. When these are paired and registered with the Engine Control Module (ECM), power is released to the ignition system and your vehicle will start.
To re-pair the system
Disconnect the battery, both terminals.
Leave vehicle for at least 2 hours.
Hold terminals together for 5 minutes.
PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION BUT NOT SWITCHED ON.
Connect the POSITIVE lead.
Connect the NEGATIVE lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.
Your vehicle should now start. If there is still a problem, you may have another fault in the ignition, or you may need a dealership to to check the ECM and chip pairing.
