and possible control arm?

When i turn on my car it will start then died and then it will turn on. Then my check engine and TCS light is always on and my car kinda jumps sometimes and it doesnt go over 3000 rpm no matter what.

My Accord is an EX Coupe. I bought it from a used car dealer a week ago. Although the car is in quite a good shape there are a few minor problems which are annoying me. Here are the details:

1. The power door lock is not working. I did my research and found out that it is a problem that many 2003 Accord Coupe owners have reported too and the most common issue is with the actuator. I took my car to a mechanic's shop for the initial checkup and they said that it could be the actuator or the master switch. Is there a way I can know for sure what it is and if so, what is the replacement cost of that. My mechanic charges 110 an hour and obviously I am on a tight budget. It is also worth noting that the remote that I have is severely disfigured and only the door open and trunk open switches can be pressed (I plan on getting a new one from Honda). The door unlock key opens the driver side door and not the passenger door and when I long press the key it even rolls down the windows.

2. The lever on the driver's side which pops the trunk open doesn't work. I can still open the trunk with the remote but that is the only way. There is a huge disconnected cable in the trunk which my mechanic also believes is the problem. Any ideas here?

replaced ign relay same problem

car will sit and idle but will not reach rpm needed to drive

this is one of the most reported problem reports for the 2003 honda accord!!!

The only sound it makes is of the serpentine belt turning the pullys but n cranking sound??

today my car died at a traffic light It is a manual 2.4 litre 4 cyl had it towed to Autozone they diagnosed it and told me it was my alternator I replaced the alternator car still makes the same sound. serpentine belt is turning the pullys but there's no cranking sound as if the pistons aren't moving??
