Failed NYS Inspection, 02 focus svt w/tune

Hi everyone, need some help,

Car wont pass inspection, NYS report states the follow:

Safety: Pass
Emission: Failed emissions due to communication problem.
Communication: FAIL
KOEO: Pass
KOER: Pass

The car does have a SCT tune installed but I never had this problem. Can someone help and shed some light? Not sure what to do next.

Thank you for you help ahead of time.

Check for blown fuses, I remember seeing a thread somewhere where the cigarette lighter fuse was blown and it supplied the OBDII port with 12v

That makes no sense.
To do any KOEO or KOER test, there has to be signal through the OBD port.

There's something else that they didn't tell you / information is missing.
