The "parking light" is useless. I think it's in there to comply with a European safety requirement, just as the side reflectors are there to comply with US requirements.
I unplugged the parking light and stuffed the connector in the headlight shell when I replaced the headlight with a Hella. I saved the parking light and its connector in case I ever want to use the connector to power an accessory, not likely. In any case, I can easily put it back to original, not that I can imagine a reason to do so.
Let us know what you think of the Sylvania. Not everyone likes it.
