Hi. A month ago I replaced a battery. Now can't pass inspection due to no emission code. I drove 1500 miles after replacing battery and still can't pass inspection. Dealer said I have to drive until code comes back. Why it is taking so long? Please help. Thanks.

Tell me what year is your van is and I'll move your question to an area of the forum where it will get more attention.

Common reasons for emissions readiness taking too long are: too short of trips, keeping the gas tank near full or near empty, and bad connections at the battery. Double check your terminal tightness and go on a long drive.

Which emission monitor is showing not ready or are there multiple?

Most hand-held scanners and auto parts stores can pull the emission monitor statuses so one can see which is 'not ready'.

Some states will allow an inspection to pass if only a single monitor is 'not ready' but it may depend on the monitor.
