Perform a emissions on a 2020 escape, test failed due to no communication to there analyzer. Ford told me that they disconnect battery for 5 min to reset system, and i retest it again, now monitors not ready, Ford said if it is the same problem after performing drive cycle or try a different brand of analyzer. ( I am like no that is not going to work no emission inspection stations are going to buy a new machine to fix no communication). Took to several emission testing stations, same problem .i am going to take to ford again. see what happens .any thought.

There is a known issue with 2020 Escapes and emissions testing due to faulty communications with the module. It happened on mine. In MA, there is a state-directed procedure for an override until Ford fixes it with a software or hardware update. It also affects the 2020 Corsair.

I guess that explains why I can't get OBD emissions readiness status on the vehicle. It doesn't even connect.
