Fuel pump on 2001 Jaguar XK8

Engine turns over, will not start. Replaced filter still no go. Spray engine start in carb and fires right up for a few seconds. If I disconnect filter and turn key on should I get fuel at that point? I am trying to determine where my problem is.

There is a fuel pump relay in the trunk fuse box but I think there is an inertia switch at the left side of the dash when you open the door there is a triangular shaped panel you pull off and press a rest button on top of the relay/inertia switch. Fuel pumps do burn out and some wiring issues at pump as well.

The reset is good. What test can I perform to check the relay? Can the Jaguar parts department bench test relay or do they need the vehicle? Thanks for your help. Bill L.
