can dealer pull historical codes?

Can BMW techs pull historic codes with their diagnostics? I had a P1628 code and engine went limp mode over the weekend.

Didn't drive all weekend, the car started up with no codes this morning. Restarted car again, a different CEL comes up. Dealer starts car up, no code again!

I know it has the throttle actuator issue, just not sure if they'll do anything without an active code.
At the dealer now. I just want them to fix it once and for all, so I don't have to wait for a CEL again to go in.

Yes, they can see what faults were logged even if you're not showing a warning light.

Thank you! Didn't know whether I had to fight it bc I am out of warranty.
CEL was on all weekend and this morning. Then once it gets into the service center holding bay, magic happens and CEL disappears
