I had the same problem. Mine turned out to be a hose that had popped off. This hose is on the air box where the air filter is located. I popped it back on and cleared the code. That was about 2000 miles ago. I'm guessing it happened during inspection (value added service where they check the filters.. THANKS GUYS)
