2010 BMW 328i fault code P1030

Just replaced my BMW valve cover and eccentric shaft sensor... put everything back together and my car won't start I used my OBD scanner and got a fault code P1030 VVT- Actuator Monitoring Position Control, Control Deviation Bank 1. What does that mean? Did i reinstall the Valvetronic motor incorrectly ? Do I have to stop limitation or is the eccentric shaft sensor ?

Did you do the part where you Turn the car on without starting it
and allow the valvetronic motor to reinitialize its position.
If you did't can you run the relearn procedure with Inpa or Ista D.

Yes put it in accessorie mode for 10 seconds and then took the the key out for 10 seconds then put key on and put it in accessory mode again for 10 sec. after that I press the brake and turn on the car at first it sounds like it wants to turn on but it doesn't... engine makes loud clicking sound almost were the valvetronic motor is sitting like it's stuck to something or something is stuck in the engine.

As I remember the procedure you are suppose to turn the car all the
way on and not depress the clutch if a manual or the brake if an automatic.
This is beyond accessory mode.

You don't say where you are located of if you have N51 or N52KP engine. See the link below for the procedure to remove and reinstall the VVT motor on N52KP. It is VERY important to (1) turn the motor shaft (worm gear that engages with Eccentric Shaft) in clockwise direction to release tension on shaft BEFORE removing 3 fasteners securing motor; then (2) turn motor shaft Counterclockwise as you remove the motor from the Eccentric Shaft; and finally (3) turn the motor shaft Clockwise as you reinstall the motor to the Eccentric Shaft.

After reassembly, when you turn on ignition (press START button WITHOUT pressing brake/clutch pedal) you should hear the motor going through the process of "learning end stops." INPA or ISTA can (1) perform System Tests to "learn end stops", (2) monitor set point and actual Eccentric Shaft Position, or (3) Activate Motor to position Shaft at various positions and read actual position.

Update.. thanks everyone for helping out. It turns out it was the battery that was making my car not turn on.. used jumper cables to see if maybe it was the battery that was drained and sure enough as soon as I connected the jumper cables car turned on.
