I think dealerships charge around $100. There are ebay replacement fobs that go for much less, but I'm not sure where I can program the fobs to work with the car.
The only place to do that is the dealership. Actually, only the factory can program your keys. So, you're pretty much SOL.
not exactly true. some of the higher end laser cut/rfid keys can only be ordered through a dealer, but a 2001 honda civic can be done at the dealer. You can buy programable blanks and and fob's on ebay and bring them in, its not cheap. However, IIRC from my ricer days, you can do it yourself, just google it, or go check like www.honda-tech.com
Ahh...I forgot his is an '01 Civic. My roommate just went through this ordeal with her Jetta, and it costed her close to $300 after everything was said and done.
^Yeah, I had to replace a fob once and "programming" it consisted of turning the car on and off 7 times and then opening the door or something as arcane as that.
it's a transponder key (it does have a chip inside)

Thats before getting into a keyless alarm, or Remote start
