I have fixed this on my own FTO. I used wet&dry sandpaper, followeed by rubbing compound, followed by polish. it's important to polish the light every month afterwards to maintain the shine.
I heard that Brasso brass cleaner is good for this too, but I've never tried it myself. There is a full guide on how to repair peeling headlights in the knowledgebase on www.fto-ireland.com

You need a 10 mil and 8 mil spanner, carb cleaner and mabie some wd40.
Remove the big hose which goes from the throttle body to the air filter housing. Under the throttle body there is a idle control valve, unplug it, spray some wd40 on the 8mil bolts and take them off. Clean the idle control valve and housing and anywhere else which looks dirty, dry it with a lint free cloth and then put everything back on.
remove the battery negative terminal and leave it off for 30 minutes, this will reset the ecu to factory settings.
On the top of the throttle body there is a black circular rubber screw cover, take that off and there should be a plastic screw.
Connect your battery and start your engine, unscrew the idle speed control (plastic screw) so it revs at 2000rpm cold. When the temp needle reached the middle so it revs at 1000rpm hot.
This should solve the problem, if you drive around and find that you in 4th gear, with your foot off the accelerator and the idle is going up and down madly then the idle control valve is worn out and it needs replacing. Cost around £125 on ebay.

sounds like you have a short somewhere. without seeeing the car, i would suggest going to an auto electrician, not a "local garage" and god forbid... to mitsubishi (unless your loaded that is).
my gut feeling would be the alternator belt (aux belt) is getting old and worn and is slipping, causing a power fluctuation, but again, without seeing it, i cant diagnose.
good luck with it, fto's are fantastic so do what you can
