Yes there is, put your seat belt on. If you insist on living dangerously buckle the belt and sit on it.

Where is the fuse located that activates the seatbelt alarm for my 2008 mercury mariner.

There is not a single fuse just for the seat belt alarm .
The instrument cluster provides the warning chime function. The instrument cluster uses various inputs to determine when to sound the warning chime. The warning chime sounds if:
  • the headlamps are left on with the ignition switch in the OFF position and the driver door is ajar.
  • the key is in the ignition with the ignition switch in the OFF position and the driver door is ajar.
  • the transaxle is not in the PARK (P) position and the driver door is ajar.
  • a door is ajar while the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • the safety belts are not fastened and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • the turn signal is on for more than 3.2 km (2 miles).
  • the parking brake is engaged and the vehicle is moving more than 5 km/h (3 mph).
  • the ignition switch is in the RUN position and a secondary air bag warning chime request is received from the restraints control module (RCM).
  • the ignition switch is in the ON position with the transaxle in the PARK (P) position and the driver door is ajar (Hybrid).
An audible signal is provided to indicate when the turn or hazard signal is on.

Safety Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating
  1. Apply the parking brake before deactivating/activating the belt minder.
  1. Place the gear selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL (manual transaxle).
  1. Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
  1. Close all the vehicle doors.
  1. Unbuckle the driver safety belt.
  1. Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
  1. Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 to 2 minutes).
  1. NOTE: Steps 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off. For seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state. After this step, the air bar warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.
  1. Within 10 seconds after the air bar warning indicator turns off, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
    • This disables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the air bar warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
    • This enables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the air bag warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
  1. After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

fastening seat belts is not always the answer as some sensors need weight to cancel the light after the seatbelt is fastened. best have it checked out by an auto electrician as the seats may have been changed and the wiring not properly connected.

Warning light came on this morning, figure of a man with the seatbelt. What does this indicate?

This is the seatbelt indicator, its not seeing that your seatbelt is fastened ifthe light stays on and the chime keeps going off.

There is a switch inthe seatbelt that closes when the seatbelt is buckled, and if not, thelight stays on and the chime goes off.

There are a couple reasons thiscould happen. It could be a wiring issue going to the seatbelt buckle,or more likely the buckle itself. Your truck is pretty new, so if youare under 36,000 miles the repair would normally be covered underwarranty.

Also, I suggest check the Repair Manual for Jeep-WK-Grand-Cherokee-Section-08O-Restraints (page 473 and next, for Seat Belt)

Hope helps with this (remember rated this) Good luck.
