DIY Diagnostic Help/Suggestions

I'm about to be a 1st time Mini Owner. It's from an Estate and a 2013 Mini Cooper Coupe.

I have a scan tool with BMW Software and have the following faults/errors, some I know why, but some I'm unfamiliar with. Some of them will clear when I install a bulb and clear the codes, but I suspect others will likely return. Before I start down that process I wanted to see if any of you might have some insight or details on the codes:

CAS Car access system, 2 faults:
A0B0/not present - CAS Input brake lights implausible
A0B6/not present - CAS Selector-lever interlock

FRM2 Footwell module 2, 1 fault:
A8AD/not present - FRM Side marker light right faulty (I know why, the bulb is burnt' out)

INSTR Instrument cluster, 2 faults:
9315/not present - KOMBI: Odometer difference
A559/not present - Instrument cluster: Power supply has been switched off (closed-circuit current cutoff relay) (Likely because the battery ran down and was replaced?)

RAD2-BO User interface, 1 fault:
C56E/not present - Connection, headunit to microphone: Short circuit

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Will

Well, the paperwork to purchase the car from the estate is done, and we started the purchase process.

So I cleared the Codes before I took the Mini to get new tires, alignment and state inspection. So for it looks like the issue is likely a weak battery, as the car did have it run down before I got to look at it and it was jump started and let it recharge. But it's still on the weak side if it sets for several days. So Once we have plates on it I'll get a new battery and see how it goes.

It looks like the New Battery, replacing the burnt out bulbs, and clearing the codes has done the trick, for now. Will keep an eye on it and see if anything pops up, but it looks like the battery getting too low/dead caused the codes to be set.
