Tomi Oliva

Trained By Techs and ASA member Tomi Oliva recently helped another shop get the job done for their client by unlocking the mystery and repairing the cause of some warning lights and codes set after a Clockspring replacement on a VW Tiquan.

If you’ve been fortunate enough to really get to know Tomi, you know that he’s worked very hard at becoming the person that he wants to be. This has been especially sweet to witness considering how much love Tomi has for his friends and family.

It is with great pleasure that I get to announce the release of a video where the Kind Hearted Beast demonstrates his awesomeness as he helps another automotive repair shop get the job done for their client.

In this video, Tomi – who is with San Jose Automotive Center in Chicago – uses his experience and tooling to uncover and repair a mysterious SRS Warning Indicator and random fault codes on a VW Tiguan after a Clock Spring Replacement.
