Power connected - Not charging

I've got a 2016 electric Focus.

I left it parked for about 3 months, probably fully charged when parked.
Got in and nothing happened except I think that the screen blinked something about a power save mode and then quickly went blank.
Plugged in the 120v cord (not parked close enough to reach the 220v charger)
On the 120v cord - Green power light on, green car light on steady-no blink. No faults displayed.
Does not seem to be charging at all.
What did I mess up?

I'm going to guess the 12volt battery died. Put a charger on that and see if the car comes to life.

That was it (3.5v)

You nailed it - thanks!

Do you know, does the 12v battery charge off the big one or only when the car is being charged?

12V battery is charged in two cases:
1) From charging 220
2) From a large battery when the machine is turned on
