That's probably a bad idea. The DS runs on about 5V and you would probably fry the board. instead take an unused usb cable, cut off the other end, and use those wires.

Charge it, the light should turn on when connected.

If it's not the battery, it may be the bottom touchscreen. Check to see if its cracked because this happened to me. If the touch screen cracks and the liquid crystals seep out, the DS will refuse to turn on.
