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.

sounds like bad fuel pump to me, your car has a in tank fuel pump.
