HI,

If the plug you are talking about looks like a regular plug that would plug into a wall outlet, that is the engine block heater plug used to heat the coolant and oil in severe cold weather. It will not charge the battery.

If yours has an aftermarket battery minder, it will also have a regular plug but it is located by the battery. That would charge the battery but takes 24hrs for a dead battery

You will need to use a jump box, or jumper cables hooked to another car's battery to jump it immediately
