Question About to buy a speed3 but is giving these codes

Hey all, looking at buying a 2008 speed3 about 97k miles. Had a mechanic look at it before further pursuing this car and its giving these codes:

B2212
U1900
B1318
U2516

Has no engine light on (as of me, then mechanic looking it over). Any idea what could be wrong, and if it's worth asking the dealer to fix it or if I should walk away?

Thanks

Edit: tried Google but couldn't find a definitive answer

If you type those codes into Google followed.by the word Mazda it will give you an idea. We don't memorize codes, so a little work on your end would help us help you

Oh sorry, here's what I found on Google, but every site seems to be different

B2212-Panel Dim Switch Out of Range

U1900- (CAN) communication bus fault

B1318-Battery Voltage Too Low

U2516-(CAN) Bus Off - Transmit Error

Thanks again, appreciate any help

Sounds like it either needs a new battery or that the alternator is not keeping the battery charged. Also need to check for a short in the electrical system that might be draining the battery.

If it isnt just a battery (low/bad batteries can cause some weird things with these cars) then I would walk away personally. A car with actual can bus problems and or body control module problems can be a real pain.

Seems like non-powertrain stored DTC possibly triggered by a low battery voltage at one point in time... If all the interior accessories work then it's probably fine.

You can go through the process of deleting the codes to see if they come back.
