Hi Anthony, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. What do you have for fault codes logged? If you dont have a way to read them Autozone will print out your codes. This will tell us what circuit the problem is in that needs repair. Let me know

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 9 months ago.

If no check engine light on yet then it still needs to complete the drive cycles on its own or forced drive cycles to pass the states computer. It just means the vehicles computer has not completed all its self checks after a battery cable disconnect or fault code clearing.

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 9 months ago.

there may still be no codes but state requirements are that all drive cycles or most need to be complete to allow it to pass.

No check engine light.
No fault codes..
How many cycles do you think this might take??
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 9 months ago.

Sometimes it can be done in one if you follow the procedure to the T. Just to be safe run through the procedure 2 or 3 times and then recheck the computer did all its self tests

Follow the procedure to the T or sometimes it will not complete... That odd that none completed though. see if that changes after a couple more tries going through the steps. Pleasure to help
