Default Help Needed : Raymarine AP issues

I really need some help with my Raymarine Autopilot. Here is my current set up.

I have a Smart Pilot Module, which is connected to a Fluxgate compass and hydraulic pump motor. From the Smart Pilot Module, I have a 3 wire seatalk cable ran to the ST8001 AP controller flush mounted. From there, it is wired to the Master of my C-120 pair.

My problem is that sometimes the heading given from the AP is in agreement with the magnetic compass on the dash. Then just randomly out of the blue, it decided to do a 180. Thus making the AP compass and the Magnetic compass not agree,

I have read that there has been similar problems with these before, doing similar problems. I saw posted earlier that it might be a capacitor that has been soldered in reverse.

Anybody have any advice? I would greatly appreciate it.
