Red start button?

Does anyone know if I can swap out my black start button for the red SRT8 one? Is it a direct swap? Any writeups?

11-13 there is no Red button direct swap.

14+ should be a swap.

Re: Red start button?

Speaking of the start button, have they provided a fix so it doesn't fall off?

I have a 2016 GC Limited Ecodiesel.

What is the part number for the red button? Also, do I need a trim tool thingy? Where do I get one?

Re: Red start button?

2014+ requires a lot of dash disassembly to replace the KIN (keyless entry node) definitely not just popping the button out like 2011-2013

Red start button?

I think you would be better if you just applied a thick sticker on your original one,
If I remember correctly, i saw a picture from a forum member here (Nathan ?) that created some quality wonderful ones.
Look for him and enjoy
