The cable should be connected to THW1 - Flow Water Temperature Thermistor and THW2 - Return Water Temperature Thermistor.

To get your system operational I would suggest that you try to reconnect the four cores. Remove the plug from the circuit board and if you have a soldering iron then solder the broken wires together, or tape them if you don't have a soldering iron. The wires should be colour coded. When repaired replace the plug back in the socket.

You may be able to get replacement Thermistors later.

I doubt that the heat pump will function without these two signals since they are rather important for correct operation.
