To put it another way, front parking lights _must_ be white, turn signals
_must_ be orange, turn signals can not be combined with another bulb function
as they _must_ have a dark backgroud in between flashes. With a US-spec
combined front parking light and turn signal, the lamp is faulty on two
accoutns, one is that the parking light is not white, the other is that the
turn signal housing is lit constantly.
