Smog rejected

So I’ve been unable to pass smog. When I go, no engine lights are on and I’m not posting any codes. It says rejected. I was speaking with the smog tech and he believes it may have to do with an OBD 2 circuit relay or the vehicle going into deep sleep mode and turning off the computer.

Has anyone had similar issues, or any ideas what could be causing this to occur?

NYS requires one regardless. Every year.

Hi Komplx. Is your Fusion Sport still within the 3 year/36,000 mile New Car Bumper to Bumper Warranty? There is also an 8 year Emissions Warranty for certain emissions related parts and systems. Consult your Warranty guide for more information, or just make an appointment with your Ford Dealer to have your cars issue properly diagnosed and most likely repaired under warranty.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

I would go to another inspection station. The test equipment could be faulty. When I lived in Ohio I had to do that every year to and one station always failed just about everyone who went to it, after much complaining it was discovered the test equipment was not working correctly. I went to another one and always passed with no issues.

The car shouldn't be going into deep sleep mode that often. I also don't think deep sleep clears any of the obd related data.

Thanks for the input, I’ll have to take it to Ford this week. I’ve gone to three different stations and all were rejects. Something odd is happening. I’ll keep you guys posted on the results from Ford. cheers 🍻

I guess you're trying to get your third registration being in NV. Thinking out loud, is this possibly a drive cycle issue?

I'm in Ohio and the county I live in is 4 years after purchase, (the start of the 5th year) and every other year after that.
There's only 7 counties in Ohio, out of 88, and I live in one..
