TCS is Traction Control System,and all TCS's are controlled though the Anti Lock Braking (ABS) system.Here's how it works:Each wheel,or in some cases,only the drive wheels have a speed sensor mounted near the hub or axle,and sends a speed signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).The PCM monitors wheel speed continuously,and if it sees a speed out of the ordinary,say for example the right rear tire is spinning and traveling at a much higher speed than the left rear,the PCM will pulse the brakes through the ABS system on the right rear to slow down the right rear so that the left and right wheel speeds match up,this is how the traction control works.So,if you have a TCS problem,the PCM will see this and set a Dignostic Trouble Code (DTC).You need to pull the DTC's out of the system with a scan tool,diagnose and repair the DTC's.It could likely be something as simple as a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor,but you won't know until the codes are pulled out,as this will point in the general direction.Good luck.

This is a redundancy thing in the climate control system. You'll want to take the console apart and check the connectors behind the climate control panel. I was installing a stereo in mine, and when I started the car (with the climate control disconnected), it did exactly what you're describing.
