the dashboard light(sensor) shows that my front door is open. on 2002 Honda Odyssey

the dashboard light(sensor) shows that my front door is open. When I am parked and lock the car, for no reason the horn goes off and I have to unloack the car for turning off the horn. It seems that the sensor is not sensing the front door locking to be correct. Can I fix it myself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
