Hello Karl,

for reseting the BasicCard you must apply a sequence of operations to the hardware (PINs) of the BasicCard. This is described in detail in international standard for smart cards ISO7816-3. These standard is available at

Since ISO standards are not available for free an alternative source of smart standard is EMV which is not 100% identical to ISO7816 but close enough for most parts. You can find EMV at
Here you may take a look at Specifications, EMV 3.1.1, "EMV '96 Integrated Circuit Card Specification for Payment Systems". For Reset take a look at Chapter 2.1.3 ICC Reset.
