NYS inspection failure??

Hi, I have a bone stock 2003 mm with 92,000 miles and having an odd problem ., I am in long Island, N.Y. and can not get my mm to pass NYS inspection.. I have been using the same inspection place for years and even they are scathing their heads.. My problem is that the merc runs great never had an issue I have a hand held scanner and it shows that is it totally clear of any codes , ready for inspection any I have never had any.. The problem is that when it is connected to the nys inspection machine it says that it is connected but no signal?? I checked all the fuses inside with both a test light and I manually removed them inspected them and put them back in .. ,The car still has its cat converters and is really a stock marauder and no mod`s were made with the exception of slotted rotors ?? I have owned the merc for a few years and had it inspected twice before and never any issues anybody have any ideas?? Really like to use it but don`t want to get a summons for the expired inspection Thanks in advance, Bill

Don't know if this has anything to do with the issue, but read post 5 in this thread

Is there a chance the Inspection Station has a bad plug on their equipment??

Well If it still doesn't pass you can always move to Florida with it. We have no State inspections.

Has the car ever been tuned?

Do you have a simple scanner for checking IM readiness?

+1. Would be interested in seeing this as it seems a bit strange.

I had the same problem this year with by Biennial Emissions Inspection. The car had been sitting quite a bit. No monitors were "Ready" on the 1st visit. Drove the car about 100 miles over the next few days and took it back for a relook. Still a couple monitors showed "Not Ready". Had to put another 54 miles on it before it all checked out and Passed. The MM appreciated the exercise, I'm sure. Guess she was feeling a bit neglected.
