no, because on the bottom of the 1156 there's 2 contacts, where as on the 1157 there's one contact. Therefore you'd either have something that didn't work, or a very confused light. try it and see what happens, it shouldn't have an adverse affect on your car.

I bought some on accident and no they didn't even fit. There are 2 little prong type things on the side that allow the bulb to slide in and one wasnt ofset right. It's hard to explain but you'll see if you try.

I think you have that backwards don't you? Isn't there 2 contacts on the 1157, and not the 1156? Oh well, nevermind if I'm thinking wrong..

that's possible, but why not just buy the right kind of bulb?
