A/C condensation pump wiring?

At one of my parents rent houses they recently had the AC/Heat unit replaced inside the house..
well, now that its warm outside, the renters are complaining that water is leaking from the closet that houses the unit.
I drive over there and it turns out that the moron that installed the unit, didn't hook the condensation pump back up!
I tell my mom to give him a call and the worthless * trys to charge $45 for the job that HE should've done in the first place!

Anyway, there are 4 wires coming out of the pump; 2 low volt and 2 120V.
I hooked up the 2 120V up to the main constant power on the unit, and everything seems to be working just fine. It pumped out the water and turned off by itself.

My question is.. What are the 2 low voltage wires for?
they look like thermistat wires and had a tag on them that said something to the effect of "safety shutoff".. why would it need a safety shutoff? and if it does need them, where should I hook them up?

Thanks for any help

It's for an integral safety switch that shuts off the unit, when properly wired, in case of condensate pump failure.

thanks for the help!

before I wired it, I took the pump apart and cleaned all of the crap out of it.. so I don't think I'll need to worry about hooking that up......... plus its just a trickle of water anyway, not enough to really cause damage if it does go out.
