92 Buick quits after running for 45 seconds

92 BUICK 350 WILL NOT RUN
1992 BUICK Roadmaster Limited Sedan 350 TBI
After disconnecting and reconnecting battery the car runs
for 45 seconds then quits, sometimes runs for 3 minutes
then quits.
Replaced fuel filter, getting fuel pressure.
The only diagnostic code is 12.
Any suggestions? Thank you.

Will it restart after it dies? If not, are you still getting fuel from the injectors?

Thanks, Sean. Sure enough, it was the module. With a new module ($35) it runs better than ever.
It was easy getting to the module inside the distributor cap, but it was hard getting to the cap, which is jammed back against the firewall. I had to climb on top of the engine and remove other hardware just to get to it.
It was worth the trouble. Runs sweet now.
Good luck to DIYers. Thanks again for the help.
