NYS Inspection "readiness incomplete"

I hooked up my ODBII tool and it is stating that there are 2 I/M monitors incomplete. The 2 monitors showing incomplete are catalyst and EVAP. Can anyone help me understand why this would happen? My inspection is overdue and need it soon. From what I understand, NYS only allows 1 incomplete I/M monitor. After some investigation, I have read that I need to complete a drive cycle to clear the monitors. Can someone tell me if there is some truth to this and if so, what is it? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I thank you for your time.

From what I understand the drive cycle should only take about 20 minutes of driving. I know mine always says "readiness incomplete", but I think that is because of my custom tune. Maybe some more info would help, do you have a custom tune? and/or an ORP?

Do you have a tune on your Focus ? If the EVAP and rear o2 is turned off in a tune that would cause it

Read here for details on readiness:

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=214389

EVAP could take a day or so of drive, park & drive again to finish it's test cycle.

Others reset quicker after being cleared, such as after a battery disconnect.

Yes it did have a strategy tune installed but I put it back to stock 2 days ago. I have put about 75 miles thus far and I still see that evap and cat are incomplete under I/m monitors.

Take your Batt loose for about 5 Min and drive again

Idk if it's the same for the foci, but most cars evap monitors want to see between 15-85% fuel in the tank, run a complete cold to full running temp drive, have the car cold soak for at least 6-8hrs, then run the cold to hot drive again.

Edit: nvm didn't read all the post thoroughly, my bad. Try Tom's idea of the batt disconnect, and try again, they should come up sooner or later.

DON"T disconnect the battery. if u do, you'll have to start all over on all the monitors. which could take upto two days of driving. if all u need is evap monitor then follow this guide linked earlier

https://www.motorcraftservice.com/vd...f/obdsm208.pdf

Evap monitor test. conditions required

Engine off (soak) time 6 hours
reach steady state cruise in 5 minutes to 30 minutes
Intake Air Temp 40 to 90F
test takes 5 minutes
BARO (<8,000 ft altitude) 22.0 “ Hg
Engine Load 20% 70%
Vehicle Speed 40 mph 80 mph
Fuel Fill Level 15% 85%

Typical EVAP abort (fuel slosh) conditions for Phase 2:
Change in load: > 20%

Catylist monitor is once per driving cycle
conditions required:
Time since engine start-up (70F start) 330 seconds - i think this means start the car when its warm, and reach steady state cruise in 5 minutes
Engine Coolant Temp 170 to 230 o
Intake Air Temp 20F to 180
Engine Load 10% minimum
Throttle Position Part Throttle
Vehicle Speed 5 mph 70 mph (Note: FTP cycle is biased towards the low air mass range, 25 - 35 mph steady state driving must be
performed to complete the monitor)
Fuel Level 15% minumum

You did the right thing by disconnecting your Batt , as far as you drove it before if it was going to set it would of set by clearing the Batt your resetting everything and have a better chance now of things being ready

If the readiness isnt ready by 3 starts and 100 miles then more then likely it isnt going to and you may have a tune with these turned off
