could I see if I could find a mobile mechanic who has a LeafSpy or some other kind of tool that could do essentially the same job?
I think the car will start and drive once the 12V battery is replaced. After that you can decide how to proceed. I'd suggest getting LeafSpyPro for yourself, it will cost about $30 in total and is well worth it, IMHO. The codes may reset by themselves but if not I'd guess most mechanics with an OBDII tool could reset them although some codes seem to be more persistent and might require several passes to clear completely. Finally, consider getting an AGM style battery since they are better suited to the needs of a Leaf (no starter motor and no alternator). BTW, a Leaf uses a 51R group size battery.
