P0445 code for a 2006 NISSAN Altima - could this be result of a broken gas cap?

My 2006 Nissan Altima recently had a broken gas cap. I replaced it with a generic gas cap. Do you think this could be causing the check engine code P0445?

nope, there is a different code for the gas cap. The P0445 is EVAP Canister Purge Volume Control Solenoid Valve Circuit Shorted

Possible causes
- EVAP Canister Purge Volume Control Solenoid Valve harness is open or shorted
- EVAP Canister Purge Volume Control Solenoid Valve electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve
