Regarding the short circuit: Open the trunk lid. Locate & examine the wiring that comes from the driver side of the trunk, and snakes up the driver side trunk lid support. Follow the wire harness down under the rear parcel shelf; untape the wiring harness. You are prob going to find some broken/shorted wires here. This is a very, very common problem.

Regarding the check engine light; sorry, without a DTC from Autozone, I cannot comment on a solution.

Yes, it has a relay, which ius controlled by the PCM. The relay is probably in the engine compartment in a box with other relays. If this doesn't solve your problem, please review my tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines and let me know if you have questions.

Hard to say, but probably not major. Sounds like your transmission output shaft sensor. Can you have the car scanned for trouble codes? Many parts stores, such as autozone and advance will perform a free scan for you.

P0420 indicates you have a catalyst efficiency issue; replacement of the Air-Fuel Sensor should take care of that;
The P0441, P0446 and (I assume P0440); you said 446 twice, indicates a faulty or loose fuel cap; it is not sealing properly.
Please feel free to respond to me if you have any further questions.
A FixYa rating from you regarding my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

There should be an access panel.
Pull up on the back seat at the front edge to dislodge the locking clips.
Note that the clips can be a really tight fit.
