Question about Cars & Trucks
Here's an idea to get you started.
Put the back end of the car up on ramps so you can crawl underneath it.
With the front tires blocked securely, have a helper get into the car and roll down the windows so they can hear you talk from under the car.
Have the parking brake set.
Take a bucket or container of soapy water and a brush, and / or a spray bottle of soapy water, and crawl under to car.
Have the helper start the car, and look and listen for leaks.
I have heard the air bags leak on air ride cars after a few years. The soapy water should show a leak when applied to the air bags and the air lines.

Sounds like one of the air bags has failed. Not sure which fuse it is but the compressor needs to be unplugged or disabled before it burns up and adds more to the repair bill.

If the compressor is constantly running you have a leak. The leak is either in the line running to the air bag or in the air bag itself. If you're lucky, it's in the line which you can determine if ou trace the lines running from the compressor while its on and listen/look for a leak. The lines run all the way to the air bags which have an electrical relief valve. It's possible the relief valve was damaged when you jacked up the truck as well. If no leak is discovered, then you've got an air bag issue and will need a technician.
Best of luck.
