I don't want to install catalytic convertor - How do I just cancel p0430 code?

the light won`t go out as the catalytic function is monitored by sensors and if the monitors don`t see efficiency within set range the light will go on. if you remove the bulb you won`t know if any other codes are being set and the light test when you turn on the key is part of the e-test it will fail and you will have to fix it anyways.

You probably caused a surge in the wiring at some time in the starter replacement process. Check all the fuses in the fuse box under the dashboard.

Running rough

I would check sparkplugs, plug wires, vacuum hoses to map sensor, check to see if exhaust is strong out pipe, may be a catalytic convertor stopped up , bad O2 sensor will cause starting and idling problems.
