Some codes do not reset right away ...even if the problem causing the light to come on is fixed. The computer needs a certain number of start cycles without the problem before it will reset on its own. And that's another reason why a code reader is a handy device; you can erase and reset the Check Engine Light at will.
The basic readers do not interrogate the ABS system; for that you'll need a much more sophisticated unit and even those don't have full functionality.
The ABS sensor may have had a bad/loose electrical connection or a bad ground. Grease on the cogged wheel shouldn't effect the sensing but I'd wanna know why there's a bunch of grease all over it .....might be a seal leaking ...blown ball joint or axle CV boot (if you have 4WD)
