I own a shop, and think this; The answer is yes & no. On yours it is called "Fuel Pump Oil Pressure Switch". It is a sending unit! It sends the signal to the oil pressure gage/light to alert you of any pressures that fall below accepatble levels, but it is also a safety switch for the fuel pump in case you are in an accident. A typical name for any oil pressure switch is sending unit, but in your particular case this switch actually has two functions, thus has this name. According to Haynes Repair Manual it is given this name, and is listed as so in the injection system wiring diagram in the back of the book.
Glad to add my 2 cents worth!!!
