Default EGR and O2 "Not Ready" during emissions.

So I have a 2000 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6, I've been taking it to emissions, shops, and have done tons of driving and drive cycles, but it still will not read "Ready". I'm not sure what the deal is. I have no CEL, and there's no codes pending during testing. I've been trying to figure it out for about three months now, and I'm honestly getting quite frustrated that I, and the people around me, have no clue what the problem is. Has anyone ever had this problem? If so, how did you fix it?

It'd be great to get some replies. This is a pretty important deal, because I can't get a waiver.

One surefire way to clear your codes (and set your emissions code to "not ready") is to remove the battery terminal or let the battery go dead. Has that happened recently/frequently in the recent life of the car?

To keep everyone posted, I have a dealership working on it. They got it to say "Ready" at the shop, but when taking it to emissions, it said "Not Ready", so all the drive cycle were clearing it, but the KAM wasn't storing it.

Can the KAM be fixed w/o getting a whole new PCM? The dealership said I needed a new PCM, but everywhere else I took it and had it looked at said the PCM was working properly.
