You'll need to check the location of the drawing contents against 0,0,0 in cad. This is a limitation in Revit.
There are two workarounds I can help you with...
One is move the geometry in the cad file closer to 0,0,0, and purge or delete any objects that are not required in cad that are currently a long way from 0,0,0.
Second way, you'll need to clean the cad file, but you can change the 'base' of the cad file using the base command, and then import the cad file using manual to base point as the insertion method.
