If the clicking is coming from the starter, then the ignition switch is not the problem. May be bad battery cables if you see any corrosion on or around the wire part of them, a bad ground wire that needs to be cleaned, or the starter itself is not working.

the battery is more then 7 so a new one would be needed...with the tin/antimony batteries will stop accepting a charge...not to mention the battery cables which may be corroded such that enough amperage is not getting thru to the starter...in case you want to mess with the ignition switch..here is what I have http://parts.lakelandtoyota.com/p/gb/TOYOTA__TACOMA/CYLIN DER--KEY-SET--IGNITION-SWITCH- LOCK/4112872/6905704030.html? partner=googlebase_adwords&kwd=&origin=pla
