All he did was to swing his arms until Ki3t finally turbo boosted into his chest to put an end to his misery. Some members have been saying that Karr is going to return but how? Are they going to glue his pieces together, that's a pretty difficult task judging from what happened to him.
I find this very weird because Karr was able to transform into a Mustang and vice versa. Now if Karr is Ki3t's prototype then Ki3t should be able to transform into a robot as well. In either case they both are pretty useless as robots, we've witnessed that. All Karr was good for was bad mouthing Ki3t and now only God knows if he will return and in what condition, maybe an airplane?
Dude, did you see the fight? KARR had HUGE machineguns on his shoulders, not to mention missiles. If you watch the extended PreVis on Youtube, you'll also see that he had a laser. Additionally, "swinging his arms" isn't really trivial - he did a lot of damage to KI3T just by hitting him. I dunno, man, but a car fighting a huge battle robot and winning will always be epic in my book.
KARR can easily return - he is an amalgamation of KI3T's programming and KARR's base form. This was a government project; the robot was just a shell. What will stop them from building a new exoskeleton? How do we know that the NSA didn't make a backup of KARR's final programming? There are a lot of ways for KARR to come back - we just have to wait and see what happens.
KARR is KI3T's prototype in programming only. There's no correlation between their physical forms.

Don't forget - we know that KARR was a prototype for KI3T, but we don't know if he was a conscious, sentient being. We know that he needed a driver. It's feasible (and absolutely plausible) that KARR, before the integration of KI3T's programming and chip, was not sentient - he may have been autonomous, but perhaps he was unable to communicate or be aware of his actions. Hence, the need for KI3T's higher-level AI. (This also resolves Torre's line - "KI3T's chip isn't plug and play - we've got to reconcile it with KARR's programming" (or something along those lines, sorry for not having a direct quote.))
As for KARR getting Mike back as a driver...I thought it was an interesting plot point. KARR stated that they were supposed to be together, that they would be "one" - I'd offer some explanation about brain-pattern imprinting, or something, but it'd be pure speculation out of nowhere. All I can say is that I like this plot point, because if KARR does ever return, Michael Knight will be his primary target and KARR will stop at nothing to obtain him.
If I am destroyed... ...so shall you be. -KARR
