I haven't actually tested programming the ilco transponder keys, so it is possible that they are problematic. I wasn't as interested in them as the purely mechanical keys. I'm pretty sure someone here pointed out that as long as the transponder is pretty close to the loop, it will work, so dangling *should* be fine. You could always test it by pulling the guts from your 1 working key + seeing how close it needs to be to start the car.
if the lostsaabkeys keys can't be programmed, I'd get in touch with them + request more information (or a refund). sounds like either they or the dealer are ripping you off! Hopefully the dealer returned you the spare guts of the keys that didn't work after they did the swap. The guts should still be fine, and they are of some value! You could even make a fob by sawing off the shaft of the old key that doesn't fit your car...
