Make sure you don't have a leak.
Easiest way/tips on checking

While in car tonight, engine off, key in ACC - while I was adjusting the stereo and amps the pump ran continuously

It should run till it builds up the right pressure then stop. Make sure you didn't pull out any vacuum lines while pulling the wires for your amp install
