Is there more than one modular on a 96 Blazer is one in the distributor

More then one modular ? Module ! Ignition module ? Which engine ? 2.2 L or 4.3 L

2.2 L has no dist.The electronic ignition (EI) system does not use the conventional distributor and coil.

4.3 L Enhanced Ignition System (Overview)
The ignition system initiates combustion by providing a spark to ignite the compressed air and fuel mixture at the correct time. In order to provide an improved engine performance, fuel economy, and control of exhaust emissions, the control module controls the distributor spark advance, or timing, with the ignition control (IC) system.
The ignition system uses a primary and secondary sub system in order to accomplish the timed spark distribution. The primary system consists of a low voltage trigger device which determines the base timing. This signal is modified by the ignition control driver (ICD) module. The signal travels to either or both the engine and transmission processor (control module) for base timing reference. Another signal is sent back to the ignition control driver (ICD) module, which has been adjusted by the control module (advanced or retarded) in order to trigger the coil, according to the requirements of the engine.
The secondary system consists of the ignition coil which has primary, or low voltage, windings and secondary, or high voltage, windings. The secondary side of the ignition coil generates a high voltage which high tension spark plug wires deliver to the spark plugs.
The control module controller now controls the ignition control (IC) and bypass functions.
In order to properly control the ignition and combustion timing, the control module needs to know the following things:
• The crankshaft position
• The engine speed or RPM
• The engine load -- manifold pressure or vacuum
• The atmospheric or barometric pressure
• The engine coolant temperature
• The camshaft position sensor

No module in the distributor

Check for the presence of voltage to the coils and the ignition control module. The ignition switch may not be supplying power in the crank position.

How to change ignition control modular

there are three types you need to know what one it is, one type is on the dispack and the other 2 fit to the distributor one type has 3 connectors and other type has 1 connector, dispack best just to change the whole unit as the pins can brake if you remove the modular of it.

1999tahoe shuts off after it warms up and starts back up after 3 hours?

And I hope you replaced the filter too, :)

Off hand I would ask if any trouble codes popped up like multi-Misfire
or engine code's of P0300- P0308, "no spake at plugs or a misfire at plugs.?" You might need a ignition control modular, "MIGHT" for some reason there's usually not a code for the ICM but you would get misfires since you lose spark to the plugs..

if your ignition control modular is inside the distributor cap and you decide to have it checked auto part stores can check it out of the truck, BUT I would add a new on IF your getting codes of P0300-308 since they run hot, and if you do replace it get the heat sink grease for the bottom of it to help keep it cool, They get Really hot..

Just my thought.

900 SE 1995 2.5 V-6 with no spark.

Start with some more basic checks? plugs, ignition wires, ignition sensors (spray em with contact cleaner) also a little more information on Exactly whats happening would be nice, for all we know its your battery, (i.e sounds, sound are important) heck shoot up the starter with a can of starter fluid....or take it to a dealership, ( I do'nt personaly work on Saabs ) they sometimes will tell you a few basic things to try and will get right to it
