I have just bought a 2003 c3 and it only has one key. I would like to buy a second or third key but I get the impression that keys from dealers are expensive. Is it possible to buy keys online that can still operate the remote locking and unlocking? If so what should I be looking for?
Can I buy the keys from a wreck and somehow reprogram the plip?
Thanks in advance.

You can't reprogram the remote unlocking of a previously used key.

The immobiliser can be reprogrammed (use a new chip) and reprogram the chip with lexia.


There are pictures of the internal parts of the fob here https://citroenc3owners.com/citroen-c3-t ... -t449.html


The lexia topic is here https://citroenc3owners.com/citroen-c3-t ... -t655.html
