Cut off the bare ends (if any), tape up or put heat-shrink over each individual wire to cover the ends and just tuck the bundle out of the way. Don't cut the wires short because you may want them some day.

Or stick an extra terminal strip under the hood and solder them (or screw them) to it, so that they go nowhere.
