I had a similar problem with my '97 Trek. It took me quite a while to get the sequence of events straight that caused the fuse to blow. I finally found the problem had to do with applying the E-Brake.
I discovered the wires that run to the remote trunk release in the console had come loose from the clip. The wires got pinched in the e-brake handle and shorted blowing the fuse. Look there you may be suprised what you find..

The problem you are experiencing is the drivers side interior light switch is not working. This is usually found in the door latch on later model cars and usually requires the complete latch mechanism changing. However it would pay to check that your car doesn't have a pin switch fitted in the pillar.Unfortunately I think you have the former.

The two most likely causes of this are either a door catch switch faulty, or the buzzer itself is faulty. If its the door catch switch that is faulty (I am assuming its the drivers door in question), then the control unit will never know that you have opened the door, and therefor the buzzer stays quiet. I would have thought that your car will have a red light that lights up on the dash when you open any door, so check if this operates when opening the door (try it with both doors to see if the light does exist). If this light only works on one of the doors then clearly there is a door catch switch fault. this can be down to the switch itself, located within the door catch or the wiring to it which can sometimes break inside the rubber boot from car to the door near the door hinges. Constant opening and closing the door causes this area to flex back and fourth, and wires sometimes break here.
If the fault is not related to the door, then it is likely to be the buzzer. They do occasionaly fail. Unfortunately they are integral with the dash panael insert (The part with the speedo and rev counter).

Replace the rear door pin-switch if needed after testing proper operation.
It is telling the alarm the door is open all the time.
Most likely corroded terminals or wire.
