My two cents, you've already got one of the experts on it, but don't talk to the seller's mechanic -- always get your own.

 

These codes are not typical.  A good, clean car should have no codes because a good owner will address issues as soon as they come up knowing nothing good comes from kicking the can down the road.

 

Also the seller's mechanic's explanation is somewhat suspect.  If it was something as simple as the battery why didn't they just replace the battery?  Such a cheap and easy fix if they know that to be the problem, doesn't make sense.  Could be one of the wiring harnesses but like JFP says why even speculate? Not your problem and I wouldn't make it yours.  You're the one with the money, you have the power.  I would skip over cars that aren't "clean".  If they are presenting the car to you with codes, this is not the type of person I would want to buy a car from.
