08 Jeep compass wont start

Hey guys so im looking into buying a 2008 jeep compass with around 130k on it. The lady says it started stalling on her and would only idle when giving it gas. did my research and was going to check the IAC. (Chrysler couldnt find out the issue and just told her to replace the entire engine) Went to go check the Jeep out and it wouldnt start due to a dead battery, jumped it, would turn over weak but no start.

The jeep threw codes P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1
P0365 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 2
also had the lightning bolt on while cranking the engine.

wiggled a bunch of wires and connectors while cranking it; nothing

Now i've read many posts where people replace these sensors and the problem still persists. What else could the problem be? I just want to know what i'm getting into if i decide to go ahead and buy this.

There is a lot of thing it can be. Including an expensive TIPM (power control module).

Most likely be a money pit. My advise is to look at something else!!!
