Door sensor/stupid alarm

So, a while back something melted in the handle of my driver side door. Now the car thinks the door is open all the time. I no longer use the interior lights function that is linked to the door opening. I drive with the door open light on my dash. And on top of that my car alarm likes to go off at really inconvenient times for no reason.

I'm about to embark on a DIY repair.I've personally done thousands of small consumer electronics repairs but this will be a first for me on car electronics. I know how to get the door panel off but I'm not sure about what to do once I'm in there other than clean up as much as I can. Can anyone tell me what wires are the alarm and what wires are the car door sensors? Any suggested is much appreciated. Thanks!
