Simple answer is no the immobiliser transponders cannot be "reset" and have to be either blank ones programmed to your ECU or originals that came with it from new also circuit board inside will not work with your body computer (central locking) although I believe (maybe wrong) these can be altered to suit minirib on here does it or others on ebay offer similar service.

The immobiliser & alarm parts of your car are 2 completly seperate systems. If you are trying to repair a broken key that you have, then if the key is cheap it may be worth it. The immobiliser chip, as Chris198212 says, cannot be re-programmed. So you will have to swap that from your old key, along with the physical metal bit that is cut at the factory. The alarm board however, can be re-programmed to your car using your code card (either supplied with the car if an import, or obtainable from a dealer / decent specialist - approx 42.00) and the alfa examiner (I don't know if any of the other diagnostic kit can programme keys / alarms). So all you are buying really is the case and the alarm remote circuit board. If your remote part is not working, it may be repairable anyway.
