I also swapped out a dead battery about one week before the first test. The car only had about 5 miles on it at the time of the first test. There is an important part of the "Ford Drive Cycle" that says "between 3/4 and 1/4 tank of fuel". I think a lot of my initial miles ( I.e. 50-75 miles) were just burning gas and not resetting monitors.

That requirement is only for the EVAP monitor.

The dead battery re-set your OBD. You must cycle the OBD to be ready. Drive at 5 MPH incraments for about 30 seconds from 25-45, holding the
accelerator steady. If you can go higher, do it. Take it on the freeway and do the same thing from 45-70-75. After about 20-30 minutes (not Miles) of driving, you should be ready for the Inspection / Smog test. I had mine ready in under 30 minutes total (after changing the tune to original). Did the same in silver after getting her fixed. Silver has no tune at this time.

It’s not that complicated, 10mins of city and highway driving, then sit overnight and take it to the shop 10 mins away. This process has not failed me yet.

I think we're losing sight of the fact that the OP says he has a hand-held scanner and it connects fine and say there are no codes and all the I/M monitors are ready, it's just the state's inspection equipment that won't read it. I don't think he has to do any more drive-cycles.

Just wanted to say Thank you to everybody that posted , I am not computer savvy so Martyo was kind enough to let me text him the scanner pictures and he told me what I need to do to ready or reset the car for inspection,. As soon as I can do that I will try the inspection again and hopefully get er done lol .., But thanks again to everybody that offered advice will keep you posted, Bill

His scanner showed that not all the monitors set.

In post #3 he says his scanner shows all monitors ready...I must have misunderstood.
