It's programmed into the computer modules, can't really be bypassed without replacing a bunch of modules AND reprogramming. I don't know what you mean by "lost your button" for the anti-theft, what you need to disarm it is the chipped master key. If you have no master key, you will have to buy a new chipped blank and reprogram the ATM to work with it, sometimes the owner's manual contains the procedure for that or you may have to take it to a dealer/locksmith.
