i am experiencing this same kind of problem. you should heed pilgrim's advice and see if you can cool that module down. this is a common problem on NA cars after the module gets old. but the only thing i question on yours, is that cut wire... if the wires to the module are not connected, then i guess technically your car shouldn't be able to start at all. one question: when your car dies and you try to re-start it and it won't start, do you hear the fuel pump kick on? if so, you've got some other kind of issue. i may be mistaken but i believe the fuel pump and relay are tied in to the ignition module. when mine dies and i try to re-start, the pump doesn't activate... only after i mess with starting it over and over or i just let it sit a while and try it again, it will kick back on. something else you should investigate are the fuseable links and your pump relay.
and you could also try installing another module and see if it still dies. i know thats just throwing parts at it, but these are still available and you might as well have a good spare. btw, i got one from autozone for dirt cheap. that is to say its much more affordable than the factory unit from nissan- that's if they even still carry it.
