Question New Key (With Remote Boot?)

I was looking for a new blank key to have cut and then program it myself.

On eBay, I found an uncut key for 17 delivered, which seems reasonable to say the least ( New Uncut Remote Car Key Fob 3 Button 433Mhz ID46 for Euro Honda Accord Civic | eBay ).

My question is will the boot release work with my car if the current keys I have don't have the button (all they have is lock/unlock), however when I took one of the keys apart, they have a space for three circular buttons, the third likely being for the boot-release, and then there's a long, thin 4th button which I have no idea what that'd be for... Anyone hot any ideas about either of those questions?

Thanks in advance.

Oh and I think I have a picture of my taken apart key which will show the 'blanked out' button(s) which I'll post if I can figure out how while I'm at work, if not, I'll post it tonight when I get home.


I had another look on ebay and managed to find a similar key with the lock, unlock and a red 'panic' button, but no idea what that'd do? Though actually, it might set your alarm off maybe?

The civic does not have the remote ability to pop open the boot.
The panic button basically sends a command to the alarm to sound when pressed.
