The simple answer is no. The Constitution protects us from unreasonable search and seizures by the police. However, there are certain circumstances which would permit the police to search your residence or your vehicle or your person without a warrant. But absent those circumstances existing, then the police must always have a warrant to search your premises or consent. Now if you consent to the search, then you’re not protected by the fact that they didn’t have a warrant.
