1st post!

I've been lurking the forums for the past few days, but finally registered to ask some questions that I couldn't figure out by searching.

I just came into possession of a not so mint 1998 Altima.

The car only came with a single key, an no key fobs (remotes).

1. I'd like to get one or two more keys (just in case). Does this require some sort of programming by a dealer? Or can I just buy a blank on ebay and have it cut in a store?

2. The car is pretty well equipped (i.e. power everything). I assume it came with key fobs/remotes from the factory, but can't be sure. How can I tell? Would getting new remotes also require a trip to a dealer, or can I just buy some (ebay again) and program them myself?

Thanks for your help.

No chip in the key. No need to buy from ebay, standard stock where keys are cut. New fobs are user programmable.
Thanks! i'll go get a key this weekend

as for the fob, i found the programming instructions and attempted the process in my car (insert + remove key 6 times) and the lights flashed twice... so i assume the car can use remotes, and i'll be picking up one of those as well
