You say you have continuity at the pump,but do you have 12volts actually getting to it (and a good earth,too)?
A siezed pump can have continuity,but obviously won't pump!I AM NOT saying your pump is siezed,just that a non working pump can show continuity!
If you do have voltage at the pump and assuming enough current,too,then the pump may be faulty.
If there is no voltage,then double check fuses,relays and the fuses/connectors by the battery positive terminal.
To see if the in tank pump is working,connect it up directly to a battery,it will be fairly obvious if it is ok or not.
I have to say that I can't always hear the pump prime on mine,unless I use MES(multi ecu scan,a laptop/pc program and it is free!needs a vag com or similar cable) and activate it with that.
I haven't heard of a faulty inertia switch,to be honest,doesn't mean it isn't faulty tho . . . . it is an Alfa,they like to keep us on our toes.
It would really help to get the fault codes read,too,it may point you in the right direction!(MES can do that and clear stored fault codes,too)(other diagnostic programs are available,too!!)
Maybe another local Alfa Owner could read the codes for you and you could post them here?
Daft question,but there is enough fuel in it?Alfa guages can be a bit hit and miss!
