It's under your hood, in one of those boxes, and should be marked. Your pump won't cut in if it's fried either. Check to see if there is power at the pump. Maybe you just have a loose wire. You can always hope!

Do you have a keyless entry? You could try to enter your vehicle using the keypad on the drivers side door, This should turn off the anti-theft security.

The heart of the fuel/ignition system is the EEC. Other components involved are the fuel and EEC relays. You could have corroded cables causing the intermittent problem. I'd start with the relays. Remove the connector cables and spray clean the connections. If no resolution try turning the ignition switch on and off while another person feels the relays to see if they are operating (also can listen for a clicking sound from them). If all come up OK then remove the TFI connector on the distributer and clean it too. Reconnect it. A voltmeter or 12 volt circuit tester would also help by probing the various 12 volt points at the relays etc but you will need a circuit diagram to find these points as well as know how to read them. The whole point is to eliminate the least costly components first. The EEC is the most expensive component. That's why I would not replace it until I was sure it wasn't something else. Shotgunning the problem can be expensive because most parts places wont allow the return of electrical parts or will charge return fees. The EEC is a mini-computer and can be damaged by electrical surges etc.
