I am not sure it was in the car when I bought it in July, but it looks newer. Never can tell by looks I guess, but the charge was 12 and 11 when turning the key to on.

most of the batteries have dates punched out.

and the dash gauges are far from accurate. really need to measure the voltage running and not running at the battery. if it will start take it to the parts store and they can load test the battery which is the most accurate way to test its condition.

I asked what the voltage was, when you turn the key to the crank position?
