Use for parking light connections?

I just replaced the stock headlights in my KZJ78 with a set of 5x7 LED lights (which are a welcome addition on our dark and wet PNW nights), but now have a set of dangling parking lights in the engine bay. Anyone have thoughts on a creative use for the leads, other than removing the bulbs and taping them off? I assume even a small LED fog lamp would draw too much wattage, but let me know if I'm overlooking something. Thanks!

LED fogs might be okay.
You could use those leads as the solenoid power for a relay. With a relay you could install heavier wire from the battery to power fog lamps. Fogs would then work whenever those leads had power. Probably against regulations.
