Well, the TSB seems to say stalling only is an issue with the 1990 on 100 (that's using the .  Any thoughts on why, and would this affect the motronic engine management on the 3B in question?

Only thought I had was perhaps there is a speed signal that is going to ground; but I don't think that is a signal used by the Motronic.  The ECU uses engine speed as an input...

It certainly would appear that the dealer service advisor (in the original 
thread) hasn't errored necessarily, and maybe just had a few points made by 
looking at the TSB Neil put forth.  This is a known problem, I've done a 
couple of these fixes already.  Here is the full monty of the TSB, short of 
the pix pointing to the 2 connectors usually at fault.

intermittently on deceleration (100, from 1990
only), caused by one or more loose or poor
solder connections on the insturment panel

While driving tap on instrument cluster, and observe speedometer needle.  If 
the speedometer needle jumps, a loose or poor solder connection may be the 

Solder Connection Repairing
Obtain Radio security code
Disconnect ground strap
Remove instrument cluster and remove circuit board

Using a magnifying glass, ck upper speedomeeter connector terminals for loose 
or broken solder connections.

Using a magnifying class, ck lower speedometer connnector terminals for loose 
or broken solder connections.

*Do not use a soldering iron larger than 30watts otherwise the circuit board 
will be damaged*
