Where is the idle control sensor for 2004 Cts Cadillac

There is none.Idle is controlled by your computer. If you have problems, check these. Vacuum lines behind throttle body. You may have to replace your air flow sensor. You can also try this:
Engine cold.
Turn your key to on position for a full minute. Don't start the car.
Turn key off for 10 seconds
Turn key on for 10 seconds. (Don't start)
Turn key off for 10 seconds. Then start the car. Might work but in all probability your main airflow sensor (MAP) is the problem.

The anti theft isn't recognizing my key, and will not allow my 2003 CTS to start. What could possibly be wrong?

This comes from personal experience on my Mother's '03 Impala. Apparently the chip in the key died. Tried the spare key that came with the car and it all works again. If this solves your problem (as it did mine) just go to your dealership and have a new key cut.

Cadillac cts won't turn off. Key turns but car

your ignition switch needs replaced, or the lock cylinder that holds the key if it just turns freely. it will need to be taken somewhere, it's not that easy of a job. hurry before you run out of gas!! how are you shutting it off? if you can find it, you could pull the fuel pump relay, but the lites are probably on also and will drain the battery

When the ac is on car vibrates

Something is not telling the computer to step up idle and is probably an ac pressure sensor. A scan tool will give you that info.
