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)

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.

A Plush Ride - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: As KITT is rolling down the hill with the unconscious Michael inside, the shots of KITT from the outside show that the bonnet and roof have large and obvious gaps between them and the rest of the bodywork (presumably a stunt vehicle). When KITT fires it's turbo boost, the bodywork is its normal flush self again.

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
