PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Santan Import Service Center 2010-2011

Lube and tire technician

I function as the mechanic responsible for all oil changes, tire rotations

and repairs, and battery replacements, for all makes and models but

specializing in Honda vehicles coming in for service where appointments are

scheduled for regular maintenance. I perform safety inspections and make

recommendations to the customer for other repair items found during my

inspections.

SPX Service Solutions, Tempe, Arizona 2009-2009

Automotive technician, Diagnostic Analysis

I analyzed and debugged the performance and functionality of five different

electronic automotive scanning tools. Each of these units are used to

diagnose problems and failures on American and foreign made automotive

computer systems. I worked independently to compare the manufacturer's

specific scanning tools against the Owatonna Tool Corporation (OTC)

developed tools. This involved establishing relationships with numerous

automotive dealerships and auction yards in the Phoenix metro area to

employ specific makes and models of vehicles for test and validation of the

scan tool's performance.

These tools include the OTC Pegisys Wireless Scan Tool, the OTC Genisys

Scan Tool, the Nissan Consult III Scan Tool, the General Motors (GM) Tech

II, and the GM Vehicle Data Recorder (VDR). Using the scan tool, I checked

specific codes and other data provided by the car, against the expected

result. In some cases, using my background knowledge in automotive

mechanics, it was essential to trigger certain vehicle failures for

evidence of compliant response. Where discrepancies were found, I

documented them in reports, using ClearQuest, for submission to the

software team for evaluation and resolution. I also provided complimentary

catalogs and software updates to those dealers who volunteered their

participation.

I regularly installed software updates into the scan tools as provided by

the software team. In performing this position, I gained a fundamental

knowledge of Linux and expanded my overall auto mechanic knowledge base.
