It appears that the driver's door operated switch is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the warning light coming on and the beeping noise alerting that the vehicle has a door not closed properly.
It could mean the door catch is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little moreand the indications should stop. If door catch is tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to still make contact. If adjusting the door catch and/or fixing rubber do not fix problem then it could be that the door switch or associated wiring is faulty. To check, try operating the switch plunger by hand, with the door open, to see if the light and chime cease. If operating switch manually still does not stop indications then it means that the wire to the door switch is shorting to the body some where. If switch appears to be faulty, you could try swapping it with one of the other door switches to see if that solves your problem
