The Body Computer has inputs from those switches but that doesn't mean it will necessarily prevent them from working. I'm working with a '92 service manual which should be the same. They show a relay block which was known to cause problems on Daytonas. That block has relays for low beam head lights, high beam head lights, one for each of the four signal lights, etc.
You can replace the Body Computer yourself but there is a real important warning. If your car has the factory-installed anti-theft system, any used computer with the right part number will work and you don't have to read any further. If you don't have the factory anti-theft system, you must find a used computer from another car that also did not have that system. This pertains to Dynastys, Intrepids, and Neons. I'm not sure if it applies to your car, but here's a copy / paste version of what can happen:
If you DO have the anti-theft system, you can use any Engine or Body Computer from the salvage yard, but from then on, that computer will only work on another car that also has the anti-theft system. DO NOT borrow a friend's computer if his car doesn't have the anti-theft system.
Both computers have anti-theft programming that can not be undone. If your car does NOT have the anti-theft system, you must find a used computer from a donor car that also did not have anti-theft, and that can be impossible to find out from the salvage yard since there's no easy way to tell unless the car was running when it was brought in. Even then, they might not have bothered to find out.
When you install either the Body Computer or the Engine Computer with anti-theft programming into your car without anti-theft, the new computer will teach it to the other one. A Body Computer will teach it to the Engine Computer or a replacement Engine Computer will teach it to the Body Computer. At that point the car will not start because both computers are waiting for the disarm signal that's never coming. Both computers will have to be replaced at the same time. If you just replace one of them, it will immediately learn the anti-theft programming from the other one as soon as the ignition switch is turned on.
If you buy a remanufactured Body Computer from the dealer, it will come without the anti-theft programming. It will work in any car as soon as it is installed and will self-program itself for anti-theft only if the system is on the car, when it learns it from the Engine Computer.
