Try to intonate by pressing down on the 12th fret instead of using the 12th harmonic, thats a better way to intonate (at least for me)

What do you mean? Of course you need to press down the 12th fret. And you need to compare it to the 12th fret harmonic (or the open string). 12th fret harmonic is always in tune if the open string is in tune. You can't intonate just by using a 12th fret harmonic, you need to compare it to the 12th fret note.

If your bass is properly intonated, but there is one note on the fretboard that is off, there is about a 98% chance that your problem is a high (or a low) fret. Have a good guitar tech check the frets and see if your instrument needs a fret dress. A disappointing number of new guitars and basses are coming from the factories without a proper fret dress. It can work wonders for the playability of the instrument.
