MY NEW '01 , THE RED SNAPPER CAME WITH JUST ONE KEY AND NO REMOTE .

NOT ONLY DID THEY LOSE THE REMOTE , SERVICE RECORDS THAT CAME WITH THE CAR
SHOW THAT THEY BOUGHT ANOTHER ONE FROM THE DEALER IN 2017 & LOST THAT ONE TOO !

I CAN HAVE ONE MADE LOCALLY BUT I WAS WONDERING IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO
GET ONE OF THOSE FANCY KEY-REMOTE COMBOs FOR A GEN 1 INSIGHT ?

ANYBODY DONE THIS ? THE LOCKSMITH SAYS NO-CAN-DO .

I bought some cheap "copy" of the combo key/remote. The remote guts fit in there fine, the key cut properly and the whole thing fell apart within a few months.

Reprogram it for your vehicle.
You might have to go to a dealer for that operation.

I purchased some on Ebay a while ago, they look the same as the original remote but don't have the Honda logo on it. Very easy to program too. It was something like $25 for 2 of them, just search for 2000 Honda Insight Remote on Ebay, there are a bunch of sellers selling them.

You can get real Honda ones but they are more expensive, and usually not in great shape as they are going to be at least a decade old.
