They MAY search your vehicle anyway, but as long as you do not give consent, and better yet tell them that you do not consent to a search, if they find anything you shouldn't have your lawyer will file a motion to dismiss on Fourth Amendment grounds.

With PC, the vehicle can be searched with or without your consent and without a warrant.
