As I understand it there are 2 types of codes, soft and hard. The soft ones are erased when you have a transient issue that is not safety-related and you cycle the engine on and off (sometimes once, but it could take more cycles). Hard codes are stored in the car's memory until someone with the proper equipment clears them.
I think most ABS and BAS-ESP codes are of the hard variety and the dealer should be able to see them.
