How old is my battery?
« on: March 16, 2014, 01:49:51 PM »
Someone on another forum was looking for information regarding the age of the battery in his car. If you have a car with a Delco battery and you aren't sure if the battery is original, this information will give you the build date of the battery.

From the Delco battery site.

How do I read the warranty date code on my battery?
The warranty date code is located on the top label of the battery. The first character is either a P or S. The next two digits determine the month, the third digit is year and the fourth digit indicates the manufacturing plant. For example, P 094N means the battery was made in September 2004 in the New Brunswick factory.

My thought was if you bought a car and after hearing  the problems an old battery can cause, you were wondering how old the battery was in that 6, maybe 8 year old car.

Not so much as to whether it's under warranty but how long it's been in there. Seen more than a few posts lately with people new to our cars that have wondered this very thing.
