Keep two wheels (left) on tarmac and two wheels (right) on grass or unpaved road and give full gas, see if spins grass/unpaved wheels . If ts spining then TC is gone and get it checked, if it doesnt it means fine.

Secondly also notice and TC light flash on dash or not?

Found this interesting article for people who ignore traction control warning

Traction control helps limit tire slip in acceleration on slippery surfaces like on roads where there maybe oil spill out of Accident or leak or there is petrol leaking i ignored the warning and met with an accident when i was speeding and there was oil on the road.

Many people mistakenly believe that traction control will prevent their vehicle from getting stuck in the sand. This couldn't be further from the truth. Traction control does not have the ability to increase traction; it just prevent a vehicle's wheels from spinning.
