No. If you have a clicking noise when you try to start your car there is a couple of common causes. You may have a loose or weak connection to your battery. Try checking the battery wires to ensure proper contact with the battery. The other could be an issue with the fly wheel. If the fly wheel is missing teeth, it can have a difficult time turning with the starter.

2001 Toyota tacoma wont start just clicks with full battery?

To start with, how do you know you have a full battery? If your battery has a one or two bad cells in it, it will give the apperance that it is fully charged but actually is not. If you know for a fact the battery is good, you may want to check all your wires going to your battery. Look for corrosion, broken or loose wires or even a loose clamp on one of your posts. Lastly and probably most extreme case, your starter might be going out. If you can reach it, knock on it a few times with a hammer, or something else in that nature BUT BE SURE NOT TO HIT ANY WIRES OR LINES!
