Will you even be able to fit the 15" MacBook Pro's battery into the 13" MacBook? Messing with power like this only result in broken things. I highly recommend to get a new battery from Apple if it's still available. Or perhaps from a reliable third party.

It is unlikely that you obtained the incorrect battery, since AASP's source their parts from Apple to perform warranty-service repairs.

You may want to take a look at this answer to a very similar problem affecting 2012 13" MBPs. It's highly unlikely it's your SATA controller - if your MacBook can read DVDs or CDs then it's definitely not your controller as it's the same one that the HDD/SSD will be connected to (Intel Series 7 Platform Controller Hub). As for why these cables fail I've yet ...
