Compass stuck in CAL N

I noticed my compass was starting to get out of magnetic alignment. I checked the VAR setting and it was set incorrectly. So I changed the value to 12, which according to the manual is the correct setting for New England. I then put it into CAL mode and drove around per the manual but no matter how many times I drive in a circle it just stays on CAL N. Has anyone run into this before? I've tried changing the VAR back to what it was originally but no matter what value I use or how many circles I do it just won't stop saying CAL N.

So I replaced the compass with a brand new one from Toyota and same problem. For the life of me I cannot get a compass to calibrate inside my truck.

Nope,
I gave up after weeks of trying every possible thing I could think of. Replaced basically every component, including the thermo sensor just in case. Ended up just putting back the plan old overhead console in.
