    Is someone able to help me and tell me the name of this female cable terminal (the white part)?

    Also where to buy them would be appreciated. Images below are 4 pin, but 2 pin is also useful for me.

    There are many generic types, the critical info is the pin spacing.

    They are commonly 0.1 inch, 2.5mm, 2.0mm & also various smaller sizes.

    The harder part is if it fits into a specific shroud to prevent it being connected backwards - that part is usually specific to the manufacturer.

    Browse through Digikey:

    Connectors, interconnect
    Rectangular - housings

    Check off 4 positions, 1 row

    Measure the pin spacing (pitch) and select it.

    Hopefully you'll see it...

    (FYI contacts are usually sold separately for these, they crimp onto the wires)

    Try to look for a faint manufacturer logo on the connector, sometimes you can find one.

    Like Robert said the trouble is the polarity tab.
