I have had the same problem with my 2005. I don't know how but my 7 year old keeps pulling it off and I took pictures so I know how to do it from now on. It's easy to do without affecting any vital parts, i.e., the spring.
You take the back panel off consisting of 2-9mm screws and 2-philips head screws. Careful pulling the bottom portion off not to rip off any posts.
Once inside there is a grey bar that runs from one side of where the handle belongs to the other. This is the part that has the spring on it. Insert your handle all the way in and once there pry gently the grey bar until its prongs are in place. The spring is located just around the area that is flat coming off the grey bar and has a noticable spot for it. Also, off of the grey bar is a black plastic tab that is supposed to hold the bar from shifting back and forth, but gives easily. So you don't encounter the problem again you might try to gently bend it back to original shape.

take negative side of battery off before starting then open the rear tailgate and remove the inner panel and then you can see what the problem is and on the Ford vans I have owned it was just the clip and you can put it back on use gloves because it can be sharp edges in behind those panels

There should be an access panel on the bed side of the tail gate. If you have a liner installed on the tail gate you will need to remove it to gain access to the panel. Panel is probably held on with torx screws but you may get lucky and have regular bolts. just remove panel and the lock rods are held to the handle with little clips, just pop them off and remove the nuts that hold the handle assembly onto the tailgate, install is just the revers order.

You have to open it from the inside and take off the entire back panel on door from there you will find your way if not write back.

It is on the same button as the Trip Odometer. Cycle through until you see Tire Reset and hold the button down.
