There is no "TCS" sensor......
TCS is a function of ABS based on inputs and logic programs to prevent wheel spin during hard accelleration on slippery surfaces (snow, gravel, sand, water, tyring to burn out)... Logic will see spinning wheel and apply brake pressure to that wheel to maintain same speed as others, along with hacking into the PCM and cut throttle ange back to reduce the torque/power output from engine.....
When TCS is working, the light will typically illuminate during operation, then go out when car going normal.
Scan of ABS/TCS will reveal codes if there is any kind of problem.. Go find some gravel or sand, and try to put hte pedal to the metal, trying to make wheels spin..... see if system comes online and takes over...
Drive across a grassy area and slam on the brake pedal hard and hold it.. see if car grinds/bumps/clicks to a stop
