Does a Motorcraft battery have a date code. I bought a 99 Crown Vic and need to determine the battery age if possible. Thanks in advance.

Normally a round sticker on the narrow side, also melted into the case.

First 2 digits 9A 9 =1999 A = January, it's probably tired by now. A new one would be a good idea. (better than walking or towing)
