Will check for power and try a new fuse
I would not ground it to the OBD connector. Ground it to a metal bracket that is mounted to the body somewhere.
Look on the back of the gauge to see is there is an access opening for a fuse in the gauge itself. I don't know there is one, just want you to check.
You could try temporarily hooking the gauge directly to the battery to see if it powers up.
Definitely check the red wire at the gauge to see if you have power.
