Default RSX Replacement Key

So I lost my key - the one that works all locks. Guess it's called the
master key? Anyway, can someone tell me the cheapest way to get a
replacement? Is there an online source that's less expensive than buying
from a dealer?

Pretty sure you'll have to go to the dealer, as in all likelihood
there's a little chip (resistor) in the key that works with the
anti-theft system in the car.

actually,it's an RFID chip inside. (radio frequency ID)
It gets interrogated and read by a transceiver near the ignition lock,it's
code compared to what's stored in the ECU.

IIRC,GM is the one who uses "resistor" keys
