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.

What you can try is have the ford scan tool alter the software so that the function is disabled.
