    It would probably void your warranty but quite easy
    To add a small colored led . I would do a small LED
    like a "smd" for the lowest current drain.

    Here's an instructable for a small LCD led backlight.

    DIY LCD Backlight: 10 Steps (with Pictures)

    It's actually a side light to illuminate the plastic .

    I don't condone this if your not proficient with electronics
    Or soldering of small components.

    I fabricated a set of leds for my GMC dash lighting and
    My 63 VW gauge lighting and indicators. I do have a background
    In component level repair.
    You could also put a front led strip light on the hood with ext batteries.
    Good luck.
