Mark :

Hello. My name is Mark and I will be assisting you today.

Mark :

Lighting technology in the Transit is designed to make driving at night or in poor conditions easier, safer and more comfortable. The large lenses of the headlights provide a high degree of illumination and can incorporate a fog light for even greater visibility. The optional automatic headlights will automatically come on when the sensors detect a reduction in daylight conditions: at dusk or in a tunnel, for example.

Mark :

You need to disable the light program with the ford scan tool.

You cannot rewire the lighting system.
