Default Replacement keys for 2003 Accord?

I have a 2003 Accord EX. Came with 3 keys. 2 full function and 1 valet key. One of the full function keys does not work anymore (multiple repairs). So, what's the best deal on getting a new full functioning key made? Saw some threads that were 2 years old. Hoping, "call the dealer" isn't the only option anymore. Thank you.

What doesn't work? Remote unlocking? Or the key doesn't start the engine?

For remote unlocking, try this...
1) Unlock Doors
2) Turn ignition key to "ON" position (II)
3) Press the "LOCK" or "UNLOCK" button on the good remote
4) Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position (0, I)
5) Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position
6) Press lock or unlock
7) Turn key to off position
8) on position
9) lock or unlock
10) off position
11) on position
12)lock or unlock - doors should cycle to indicate successful programming. If you only have one remote, turn ignition to off or don't touch anything. if you have 2+ remotes, go to 13:
13) lock on each transmitter that you need to program

*Steps 2-12 must be performed within 5 seconds of each other. Step 13 can be performed within 10 seconds of step 12.

Default It's all busted up

Thanks for your response. I need a new key. The key is in pieces. The shell broke and I fixed it. But now it's to the point where I just can't put it back together again. Just looking to get the best deal on a new key. I will call the dealer today and report back.

PS-Just got off the phone with my Honda Dealer. It's $65 for the key and $49 to program it. They need me to bring in the car and other 2 keys. No bad I guess. I wad thing $200+.

If the internals work but the case is busted, maybe cheaper once they see that. The skeleton with the metal key would have to be cut to fit the lock cylinder, but if it's the other side of the case broken, that's just a little plastic part (#22).

I guess it all depends on exactly what's broken.
