I had a similar problem all it was a the rubber boot after the sensor was sightly disconnected and produced the same code. I would even take it as far if there is a decent rip in the boot would also cause the problem.
and yes you can test it

p0505 is a code for your IAC (idle air control valve) located right below the TPS (throttle positioning sensor). Beware it is not necessarily the sensor. If you use a test light on the connection coming to it while the vehicle is running and rev the motor each terminal (probably four) should flash. In this case it is most likely your sensor. If not it is in the wiring or your pcm.

Here is what I could find for your code error as potential causes:
After market parts and accessories nonconforming to the EVAP system specifications.
Damaged, missing or improperly installed fuel filler cap.
Blockage in fuel vapor hoses/tubes (EVAP canister tube, EVAP canister purge outlet tube or EVAP return tube) in EVAP system.
Disconnected or cracked fuel vapor hoses/tubes in EVAP system.
EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed.
Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck open.
Fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor malfunction.
EVAP canister leaking.
Fuel vapor control valve tube assembly blocked.
Fuel vapor vent valve assembly blocked.
Obviously the gas cap would be the easiest and cheapest thing to fix. Just make sure it is put on correctly and tight. If it is not that, I would have to suggest to take it to a mechanic because the other problems on that list are not really DIY material. Hopefully it is the gas cap and you can take care of it yourself. Good luck.
