Does kayro syrup help induce labor?

No evidence: Karo corn syrup has never been studied as an agent to induce labor and likely never will. I would not recommend attempting labor induction at home without consultation with your provider. Karo syrup will likely just cause elevated blood sugars and i would avoid it, in pregnancy...And in life, really.
