Car won't start. Just clicks. Had AAA check the battery and the alternator. Both good.

Sounds like a problem with the starter, or solenoid.

Or a bad battery connection.

Check battery cables. Make sure ground is tight at both ends. May be necessary to remove them, clean the connections and reinstall. If that does not do it, then do the same checks on the hot lines. I found on one car that the main cable to the starter had frayed to the point of only 2 strands making contact!

Do not just change starter and alternator without checking them first. Your description is usually bad connections.
