You can do it with a OBD2 system scanner through the diagnostic connector in front of the driver under the dash or you can disconnect the NEGATIVE (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The scanner method is preferred because you don't loose settings like the radio.

Have you tried turning the key in the ignition with the chip in it? Some cars work if you turn the key on and off a number of times, say 5-6 times, and most cars with auto locks will lock & unlock when things have been reset to let you know.
