The Topaz Connection - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Just after Michael wakes up from being knocked out trying to stop the plane, he goes from the front of the Knight semi trailer (where all the computer equipment/office is) they are travelling in to get into KITT. He gets into the driver's side of the car (far side from the camera, indicating that KITT is facing towards the rear door of the trailer. However, in the exterior shot of KITT leaving the trailer, he emerges backwards down the ramp then does a 180 spin to go back the way he was facing when inside.

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, KARR has his own unique yellow voice modulator. However, when he is talking to the two robbers in their lockup and we see KARR mainly from the outside, the light flashing inside KARR as he speaks is red, suggesting that it is KITT (or at least the KITT prop, possibly filmed before the KARR's modulator was made or reused from elsewhere).
