I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE WERE I TOOK MY CAR SO I DON'T REALLY TRUST THEM TO TAKE MY CAR BACK TO THEM. CAN ANYONE LET ME KNOW IF IT'S POSSIBLE THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG OR DO I NEED TO RESET THE LIGHTS MAYBE ??? ANY TIPS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED IT !!!

Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.
Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.
HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCAN,SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ABS BRAKES AND THE TRACTION CONTROL,SEEM LIKE YOUR AIR SHOCKS ELC HEIGHT SENSOR COULD BE BAD CAUSING AIR SHOCKS TO OVER EXTEND CAUSING CAR TO RAISE HIGH ON BACK END.WHICH COULD BE THE CAUSE OF ABS AND TRACTION LIGHT TO COME ON, TO FIX THIS PROBLEM HAVE CAR CODE SCAN AND YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT CAUSING THE ABS AND TRAC LIGHT TO TURN ON.
Traction control and anti-locks(ABS) lights come on there is sensors that are pluged in behind the rotors check and see if they are disconected or loose sometimes when you change your brake pads they might come loose and not making contact.
lights usaly come on when there is a system fault. check for a broken or chiped wheel speed sensor ring, or a damaged wheel speed sensor. try disconecting the negative battery terminal for a few seconds to reset lights
