Won't pass DEQ Emmisions but no engine lights on? on 2002 Mercury Cougar

Would this emmision problem have anything to do with a recall on this car? And why would it not pass emmision test when no engine lights are on?

no recall I see. what recall are you referring too??

you may have monitors not set for some reason like you replaced a battery.

There must be a reason for not passing the test, like the drive cycle is not completed, or something similar. We need to know the exact reason to be able to help you.
