Script to enter cars and flying vehicles problem

hi everyone, i set up cars as a wheeled vehicle and attached a box colision componant to it to use an overlap event to switch possesion from FPS character to the car and it works great however i tried the same thing to a space ship which was a pawn, but when i add the box collision to the space ship the player collides with the box collision and can’t enter the box, but only when on the space ship. cars work fine. any ideas why or what i could do to fix this?
thank you
