Is there a glue that will connect two electrical wires together? It's in a location that I don't want to use a soldering iron.

    NO GLUE ! solder them and insulate each wire seperately. Better yet, get an electrician friend to help.

    Bondic is a lifesaver for most things! It has even stopped the crack in my windshield. It is a clear "glue" then you use a UV light, that comes with it, to cure it. Just make sure that your wires aren't live when you use it. Amazing product for just about anything that you want "glued".

      I emailed the company, and they said it is not recommended for electrical connections.

    Why can't you use good quality wire nuts. More than likely that's what an electrician will use.

      In this situation you will need o buy a rear window defrost repair kit. Any auto parts store sells them. The adhesive has metal particles in it to make electrical contact.

    Yeah, use wire nuts or butt connectors. Butt connectors, slip a wire in each end and crimp.

    No glue that I know of. Depending on voltage... they make screw on electric connectors. I would recommend highly to ask an electrician before doing anything. A fire is a risk not worth taking.

    Electrical connectors (twist lock, etc) have replaced soldering and make excellent connections. No glue.
