Being single, I wanted my buddy to have a spare key for my car, so I went to the dealership and locksmith and both wanted $300+ for a replacement key.

I thought, Well, I just want to make sure I don't get locked out, so I had a $4 key made at Lowes, and it works just find - AND - it starts the car! I couldn't believe it, so I went back inside and put my two key fobs in a faraday cage (so no radio signal gets out) and tried again.

Sure enough, the $4 key starts up the Prius C and it drives just fine.

What the heck? Does the "C" not have a chip in the key?
