    There is a date code number hot stamped/melted somewhere on the top of the battery. The first digit is the year, and then what follows the date code when it was made in that year. A Delco distributor could probably get the same information from the serial number, or decipher the stamped code.

    Thanks to Allantesource & Eric

    I saw that hot stamped code on top & it comes out to Feb, 2000. No wonder it's dead.

    Thanks for the help fellas!
