1997 Acura TL 2.5 wont start

So about a few months ago I purchased a 1997 Acura TL 2.5 with a 5 cyl. It was in pretty good condition other than when I locked the doors it made a very nasty noise and the SRS light was on. One night I was driving it home, and I’m not sure if this has anything to do with why it won’t start, but it wouldn’t accelerate very quickly, and I could only move across intersections at around 20mph. My boyfriend is a mechanic and has been looking at it but we haven’t really had much luck. We replaced the SRS system and had the starter tested (which was awful to get to because it’s under everything) but neither of those things worked. Does anybody have any idea what the problem might be? When I try to start it nothing happens. No clicks, nothing. Although the lights and radio all still turn on just fine.
