Default P0447 after body work

I just got my rex back from the body shop (they replaced my right QP), now I am getting the following code:

P0447 Evaporative emission control system vent control low input

What does it mean, is the car safe to drive, and is it something I can fix easily myself??

The evaporative charcoal canister and associated hoses are located under the right rear of the car, so if there was damage and repair work in that area it's likely some of those components were affected. It's not dangerous so you can drive the car around, but it will need to be fixed. It's easiest to inspect the stuff under there with the car on a lift.

I had body work done to the rear as well and got an evap code also. Turned out one of the pipes that runs to the charcoal canister was rubbing on the strut and had a small hole in it. I patched it up and code never came back.
