Rev counter bounces after engine switched off


I've been searching the forums for similar threads, but can't find anything. I've trawled through various searches so please forgive me if this has been discussed before, I'm new around here.

So, on my 1999 156 TS Selespeed, when I switch off the ignition the rev counter starts bouncing around flicking up to 2-3000 revs then bounces on the stop. It does this for about 10 seconds after the key has been removed from the ignition. The engine is OFF whilst it does it's little dance so the engine itself is not revving along.

There are a few other electrical gremlins (and some other problems that are discussed in other threads such as stalling at low speeds when the engine's cold and occasional failure to start with the "N" gear indicator flashing in the rev counter). I've cleaned the battery terminals and all the fuses in the fuse holder on the battery thoroughly, but it could be an earthing problem.

Any ideas about the rev counter bouncing?
