Hello, I'm Brandon - VW tech.

The fuel pump is bad and the inertia switch which is part of the fuel pump assembly.

You will have to replace the whole fuel pump assembly.

The whole assembly will cost you under $190.

does the inertia switch have to do with the incline problem

yes it does

After you change it out , it won't be any issue.

Please rate me positive, thank you. Let me know if you have further questions.
