A diffrent kind of bad compass health apm 2.6

It just does not make any since error for no reason?

It runs off 5v from GPS so it cannot be the 3.3v regulator but I checked it anyway. Its ok
The wires and connections check fine
I disable the the external compass and I still receive the same error
I can have tried calibrating the compass and the calibration sphere behaves like normal
I have calibrated every thing else
The error happens with and without battery connected
Recently replaced the APM, ESC, and motors
The magnetic is about 276 under status tab
Is there even anything wrong with the compass, some how a false error?
