As near as I can tell with mine, it just keeps you from burning rubber on
those full throttle starts.

If by "on" you mean so that the warning light is off, yes.

If you push the TCS button and turn the TCS warning light on, it is warning
you that you have turned TCS off. It is on when the light is off.

If it ever engages to stop spinning wheels, the warning light also comes on
momentarily to warn you that it is doing something.

There is a description of what the TCS light means on page 55 of the 2000 TL
owner's manual and a description of how the system works on page 175.

Also, when it is ON (by default), it flashes when it is active (System is
applying brakes
or system is cutting lightly the gas throttle)
