White sheathed wires destination?

I have a brown sheath and a white sheath, each containing two copper wires (red & white). The pair in the white sheathing are not connected to anythin g and slipped right out of the AC unit housing. What are these two wires fo r? The condenser and fan do nothing when attempting to power on the unit.

I think I've determined those two wires are for the power saver, which appears to be mounted to the house, but those wires are just loose, not even capped. Is there a way to hook them up, or are they not connected because a component/wire is missing?
I also found the start capacitor leaking oil, so that is going to be replaced shortly. I am thinking about replacing the currently installed start capacitor:
AeroVox MALLORY MADE IN U.S.A. 145-175MFD 330VAC 44A9301 20-03876 677-8807-05
WITH:
Airstar Supply 145-175 MFD 330V Electric Motor Start Capacitor
This replacement does not have a bleeder resistor; so I plan to buy a properly rated resistor and solder it to the contacts myself.
Are there any issues with this plan?
Thanks for any assistance!
