Yes you have one.
Inertia fuel shutoff switch
The inertia fuel shutoff switch is a mechanically operated switch, located on the bulkhead adjacent to the washer reservoir under bonnet [hood].

The switch is normally closed and is in line with the fuel pump circuit. In the event of a sudden impact the switch opens, and disconnects the electrical feed to the fuel pump. The switch is reset by pressing down the button.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1999 landrover discovery sd

look for power at the fuel pump connector at the fuel pump in the fuel tank (the wire that should have power when the engine is running or cranking over is White and Purple (maybe White and Pink, I can't remember). These cars also have a fuel pump inertia switch (a crash protection device, if it fails the fuel pump looses power), located passenger side rear of the engine compartment, same type used on Jaguars seen the fail, just press the button on top of the inertia switch to reset it or temporarily bridge the two wires and see if the engine now starts. Fuel pump relay is behind the right front kick panel at passenger right foot well.

I cannot get electricity in the fuel pump plug that comes to the Fuel Pump assembly, even with the ignition switch on. Please, help me with some details. I ordered a fuel pump assembly but I am not sure it...

Check the inertia switch that is below the left front seat attached to the seat base rear cross-member. If it has been activated, it needs to be reset by pressing down on the button. If it does not seem to reset, remove and check the contact for continuity with an ohmmeter. If you do not get continuity, replace the inertia switch.
