Chariot of Gold - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Michael rescues Bonnie and asks K.I.T.T to meet him, one minute it is night time, next scene bright daylight. If it was morning it wouldn't be that bright. This is where they have possibly used footage from a previous episode. (00:26:20)

Chariot of Gold - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When they arrive at the museum and start to unload K.I.T.T it is raining fairly hard. When it cuts to Bonnie and the Professor and the woman it isn't raining. This keeps happening throughout the scene. (00:38:15)

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).

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, KARR doesn't appear to have a rear number plate as KITT does. However, in the shots of KARR smashing through windows/walls, he has KITT's ‘KNIGHT' plate.

The Topaz Connection - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Michael falls off the plane and onto KITT's hood, he is not wearing his leather jacket as he tries to stuff it in the rudder to stop the plane from taking off. Very next scene, he awakens in the FLAG Semi, wearing the jacket that fell into the driver's seat as he fell off the plane. I doubt the doctor would take the time to put Michael's jacket back on.

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The lights on either side of KITT's voice panel keep changing. The top four (air, oil, S1, S2) first are yellow, then orange, then red, then yellow. Also, the first time KITT talks when Michael asks about a radio, the panel doesn't blink.

Movie Nut

Hearts of Stone - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When KITT lands in the back of the pick-up truck near the end of the episode, the internal shot shows the girl starting to get out of the passenger's side. But in the next external shot, she is getting out of the driver's side.

Give Me Liberty... or Give Me Death - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Just after the tyre is shot the car skids and comes to a stop. In the next cut away inside the car, it is still skidding. (00:14:20)

No Big Thing - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: KITT tells Michael he is running low on gas. Before they changed to the view of his fuel gauge, it was on the 3rd bottom of the RPM indicator. When they change, it's put on the top just below the RPM indicator, and changes again to the 3rd bottom.

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Michael fights for his life on KARR. He then jumps to safety on KITT and gets into the car and goes chasing after KARR. The next scene has Michael back on KARR fighting for his life.

Continuity mistake: Watch KITT shoot KARR with the laser. When KITT hits the laser on KARR one of his headlight covers blows off but then returns.

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (1) - S1-E1

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.
