Replace the purge valve. It will seem fine but a new one usually fixes this fault. I've fixed quite a few this way.

Unplug it and see if the battery still dies. I doubt that is the problem. Do a battery draw test and then start pulling fuses till the draw goes away. Do some searching here and Google.
