Yours is new enough that it may be a warranty fix, if so let the dealer check it out for sure!

if it isn't, try the gas cap first - by making sure it's tight when you fill up & seeing if the code goes away in a day or two - then trying a new cap if not.

I re-set a neighbor's Durango a few times over a year, when it coded he couldn't remember if he checked the cap or not... then finally it gave that code when he DID remember tightening it properly, replaced the cap & didn't have that issue again.

Cheap fix if it works, but as mentioned check your book for warranty time vs. when you bought it first.
