The CDI box is mounted in the engine compartment on the drivers side. Silver/Grey in color with ribbing. It has a large connector on the bottom of it. The CDI box (Capacitive Discharge Ignition) is the piece that sends the high voltage to the distributor for firing your spark plugs. You can check if it is working by pulling a plug and holding it near metal in the engine compartment and look for a spark. They go bad all the time. Luckily we have a place in South Florida that can rebuild them. Sometimes it is as simple as a melted ground wire inside that you can resolder if you are comfortable doing that. Usually just take it off and mail it to them. But... check the other stuff first!!!
