The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Here is the definition for the code.
You may need a shop manual for the actual test procedures.

P0441 MITSUBISHI Description The vapor pressure sensor, Voltage Solenoide Valve (VSV) for EVAP, Voltage Solenoide Valve (VSV) for canister closed valve (CCV) and Valve Solenoide Valve (VSV) for pressure switching valve are used to detect abnormalities in the evaporative emission control system. The ECM decides whether there is an abnormality in the evaporative emission control system based on the vapor pressure sensor signal. Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0441 is recorded by the ECM when there is a malfunction in either the VSV for EVAP, the VSV for pressure switching valve, or in the vapor pressure sensor itself, or when evaporative emissions leak from the components within the dotted line in Fig. 1 below.

The ECM closes the CCV and opens the VSV for pressure switching valve causing vacuum to increase in the entire EVAP system. The ECM continues to operate the VSV for EVAP until the vacuum is increased to a specified point at which time the ECM closes the VSV for EVAP. If the vacuum did not increase, or if the vacuum increased beyond the specified limit, the ECM judges the VSV for EVAP and related components to be faulty.

Try a day time running light modual,these things are notorious for messing up,and since they are supposed to work when the car is charging it seems like the logical solution.

No its not normal and yes that could drain the battery.
I would think the light around the ignition key lock would be on too.
Probably a courtesy light problem - there is a timer somewhere that turns those lights off after you close the doors.
If it is just the light for the lighter you could cut that wire.

I can't remember exactly where it is but by the passenger side there are two solenoids that are often the cause of awd issues if you follow these hoses from the solenoids in sure you'll find the canister.

I don't know the cause, but did you put thread locking compound on the bolt threads? Try Loctite red, high strength.

Sounds like to me you have a faulty EGR vacuum solenoid which regulates the vacuum pressure sent to the EGR valve.
