Check to see if the "button" is in a plastic bag in the glove box or center console. If not, then the dealer owes him a button.
The button just snaps into the place where he is currently inserting his Fobik.

All SRT8s come with them! Dodge ships them in the trunk with other items such as the floor mats. Most times, the dealer prep guys install them for you or places them in the glove box or center console.

At most dealerships, they remove these from the cars so that they are not "lost" during test drives and on display. But they place them back after the sell. So, I guess the real issue is where they "put" your friend's.

Mine was in the glove box with the owners manuals/window sticker. I've seen them in the glove box, center console, and where the spare tire sits.

Nope, quote from the 2011 Dodge Challenger sells brochure:
"INTERIOR FEATURES STANDARD ON ALL DODGE CHALLENGERS//Keyless Enter-N-Go; Push-button start;..."

So if you didn't get one, the dealership screwed you.

I just bought my 2012 Challenger R/T Classic, and the push button was in a small plastic bag in the glove box. At delivery my Sales Advisor asked me if I wanted the button installed, and when I said yes, he just pushed it in place where the key-fob is inserted.

Maybe I haven' checked my car good enough LOL... If I don't have one, I'll call the dealership and make sure I get one.

I believe it's only $11 to buy one.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.
