ignition module It's possible that the CDI module went bad. If the car has a tachometer built in to the dash you can use that to make a simple check. Crank the engine while watching the tach. Does the needle on the tach bounce slightly when cranking or does it stay still? If the tach needle doesn't move the CDI module is dead. If the tach needle does move the problem is somewhere else.
