Just glue a little hair around it haha! No offense just couldnt pass it up. I was also dissapointed when I got mine and it didnt light up. My wifes Edge lights up and so do the Chargers. Ive often wondered if the Chargers button would interchange.
2013 RT automatic
3.06 rear, SRT Alcoa, Mopar T shifter, Mini van Mygig, and a Borla Atak in transit!
I bought a fiber optic light with thoughts of running them up into the cavity around the start button.
Unfortunately, when I pulled the cover from the bottom of the dash, it looked like it would be pretty difficult to access that area from below, and not having the light doesn't bother me enough to rip the dash apart
Recently bought my 1st Challenger, 2013 SXT PLUS in GCM, and I'm starting on some interior mods.
I also wanted to do a backlit start button and was kinda disappointed when I pulled the factory button off and saw that the area behind it wasn't hollow. I haven't given up on the idea, but I'm going to have to attack the problem from a different angle. Has anyone had any luck taking the button assembly apart after pulling it from the dash?
Sit in your car, look where the button is, close your eyes and try to touch it. Repeat several times until you nail it, every time.
Don't get too distracted by gee-gaws and shiny lit buttons.
Or do what my aunt did for my uncle when he had trouble finding the keyhole when drunk; glue a furry piece of cloth with a hole in it around the button; you'll have little problem finding it in the dark.

The problem with lighting the button up, isn't the button it's self but rather what the button snaps into (The WIN Module). I have never been able to find any photos of the guts of the WIN module to theorize on how to do this. I originally had thoughts of doing this last year and just gave up because it didn't seem worth the trouble.
