5.10. The electrical connections shall be such that the front position lamp or the passing-beam headlamp, if there is no front position lamp, the rear position lamp and the rear-registration-plate illuminating device cannot be switched ON or OFF otherwise than simultaneously, unless otherwise specified. a0c0
5.10.1. In the case of an interdependent lamp system, all light sources shall be switched on and off simultaneously. a3c0
5.11.
