Who we are and what we do

Direct Data is a specialist motor vehicle diagnostic and key programming company, offering a wide variety of services and solutions at competitive prices. We stock the widest product range of diagnostic tools on the continent and are authorized official distributors for TEXA, OTC and Autoland Scientech.

If you are having difficultly finding a solution to your automotive needs, it is very likely that we can help you. We offer an in-house diagnostic test service which gives you peace of mind in diagnosing and locating faults in the control units of your car.

Key Coding

We stock a wide range of keys for cars, bikes and commercial vehicles and we can program remotes and keys for most vehicle brands on site at our Johannesburg office.

We save customers money as many OEMs require you to also replace control units in a ‘all keys lost’ situation while we are able to assist immediately.

Unique offerings:
Key repairs – should your existing key start to give you problems, we are able to rebuild your key for a fraction what it might cost to obtain a new key at a dealership. Key problems we can solve include intermittent starting, broken buttons, loss of remote functionality or complete failure.

Diagnostic Equipment

We offer competitively-priced diagnostic machines for passenger, commercial, construction, agricultural, bike and marine applications, where most of our competitors can only support a single brand or single category of vehicle.

As an authorized official distributor for TEXA, OTC and Autoland Scientech, we guarantee expert support and assistance for when you are in need.

ECU Refurbishment

We have specialized equipment and expertise to either completely refurbish ECU machines or, if necessary, replace damaged control boards with a new programmed unit resulting in a ready-to-go unit that is much cheaper than OEM’s and we offer one of the largest selections of ECU’s, off-the-shelf and ready for programming in Southern Africa.

We also offer: engine controllers, transmission controllers, ABS pumps, remotes, instrument clusters and more.
