Very easy to fix.

Just disconnect all the cargo lights from the Transit electrical and repower them from the house battery. Add a manual switch for each in a convenient place. I have a sink cabinet that partially blocks the sliding door. On the forward side of the cabinet I have a toggle switch to turn on the lights above the sink. Can reach switch through the open slider standing outside or from inside standing at the sink. Not automatic but works fine.

No charge for the info!

2015 high roof 148" WB 3.5 Ecoboost 3.31 LS rear cargo.

The switch is adjustable, pull it out and the switch slids in the housing. Takes alittle effort but free and the proper way to fix it. Not a bandaid.

If you look at it from behind it had tabs that will fold in so it can be pushed out. But if you push on the whole sensor it should slide on the ridges to adjust it.

I'll keep using my gorilla taped wood block until I get up the gumption to take the door panel off the wagon.
