Revealing mistake: When KITT takes part in the race and goes up on two wheels, you can see that the stunt driver is behind the wheel and that a dummy is strapped into the passenger's seat.
Continuity mistake: If you look closely at KITT throughout the pilot, the position of his scanner lens changes from being the normal scanner that we're all used to, and the scanner being at the very tip of the front bumper. (The latter case is because the car was used for a promo shots to sell to NBC, and after the show was picked up, they changed KITT's look, but still used the earlier shots).
Continuity mistake: During Comtron's Demolition Derby, Michael engages auto control. Michael controls the wheel during the ski mode stunt. When the car drops back on four wheels, Michael is driving with a regular steering wheel instead of KITT's steering wheel.Joseph Z
Revealing mistake: There is a scene where KITT drives over to Michael, and you can see the drivers seat is really a guy dressed up in a light brown suit to look like a car seat. You can see for a visor that its a glass panel made to look like a hollow head rest, but you plainly see the guy take away his hand off the steering wheel.pierpp
Factual error: A secret file is password-protected on a computer, requiring a six-digit numerical access code. KITT states that the possibilities "are virtually unlimited." In truth, if each digit can be 0 through 9 (numerical meaning no letters or symbols), the possibility is 1 in 10^6, or 1 in a million. A supercomputer like KITT should have no problem running each number systematically until a correct code is found.
Revealing mistake: During the Comtron Demolition Derby after Buddy sprays oil, Michael asks him not to push another button. Buddy decides to push the next button for Smoke Screen. The license plate is mirrored THGINK (instead of KNIGHT) before the smoke blows.Joseph Z
Revealing mistake: During the demolition derby, the shot of KITT releasing his smoke screen is flipped; you can see that the license plate is backwards.
Continuity mistake: As Michael realises how he will be stopped on the way to the airport, he pulls over. KITT's front lower bumper does not have its spotlights, it is just a plain bumper.
Revealing mistake: When KITT is in the valet carpark, he pushes the cars in front of him forwards. It is very obvious they have attached rubber protectors to the bumpers to prevent damage. Also, when KITT is driving by himself 10 seconds later, you can see the stunt man's hands driving the car.
Continuity mistake: After Michael gets shot and gets in his car to race to the airport, he calls Devon on the intercom. Before he gets into the car, he flinches and grasps his left side shoulder area where he was originally shot. When he talks to Devon, he's grasping his right shoulder. After he finishes talking and continuing the drive, he grasps the left one again.Joseph Z
