Extreme cold weather

So this past winter, while an unnaturally warm one for us to be honest, did yield some cold days. But even at -39 degrees C (-38 F), the X1 always started and drove without any major issue. That being said, the yellow "lift" icon has been displaying for a while, so I figured it was time to pull the codes and see what's up.

See attached images. That's a lot of codes...... I deleted all of them and have been driving around a bit, nothing's come back yet. I'm presuming most of those codes were generated from the extremely cold temps. If anyone sees anything I should be particularly concerned about, let me know.

Is it possible that a low battery voltage (?dying?) situation could have "contributed" to the codes? In my past BMWs the iDrive alerts & warnings increased as the battery voltage decreased :-( In the end, it was the battery that was replaced and everything else went away :-)

I suspect this is the original battery, actually. It's going to be replaced this year at the annual dealer servicing.
