You say that you can spin the wheels with the TCS ON. My car does not let me spin the wheels at all with the TCS on. I can only get the wheels to chirp with the TCS ON but as soon as they begin to spin, the TCS grabs. With the TCS OFF I can seriously spin the wheels in 1st and at 30 MPH I can get the car sideways in the shift to 2nd.
With the TCS ON you should not be able do anything more than a chirp.
Maybe your TCS has crapped out.
