Welcome to the forum R3DPAUL,

the fuses to check are in the engine bay fuse box (BSM).

There is no relay to be checked as its all integrated into the BSM unit which is really a 'black box', if you suspect it, change it.

A test you can do is to use Lexia tool - (OBD won't do it) to see the signals from the stalks to prove or disprove the stalks (COM2000 - information is here) before replacing the BSM.

The Citroen C3 haynes manual (here) has wiring diagrams that covers the electrics and mechanicals of the C3 Pluriel with exception of the roof.
