If the car is a 203,,then the stalk will have failed,,some folk manage to clean them,,it is a steering wheel off job to replace it

Yes the 203 bit relates to the model of the car,,as you said "coupe" this puts the car in the 203 class of car.

Yes the indicators are all part of this,,there might be a re call on this switch, this is not a fuse problem
