Eos Rebel 2000 battery problem

I have a Canon Eos Rebel film camera and there's a recurring problem with the batteries - I think it's actually the battery connections, as the batteries tested fine, and I tried a new set just to be sure. The problem is sporadic. For example, today I shot an entire roll of film with no problem. Then when I removed the exposed film and pressed the shutter button, I got the battery drain display. Any thoughts?

Camera indicator in back that shows how many pictures are left wont shut off and it drains the batteries because of this , it is a canon eos rebel k2 model, thanks for any help

That's entirely correct and normal, but the battery drain caused by the film counter is absolutely insignificant: think how long digital watch batteries last and they have far less power than your camera battery.

If the battery drains rapidly when the camera is not being used then there is something else causing the problem. Make sure that the camera is kept with a lens cap on when stored and not in use and consider removing the battery, although doing so for extended periods means that the camera will lose it's memory.

Lock positon; film icon and #of exposures still appears, ist that normal?

Perfectly normal. The beauty of LCD displays is that, as long as nothing is actually changing, no power (or very minimal) is being consumed. Think of it this way: dump a pile of sugar on a table. Draw a number. It took energy to make the number, but it doesn't take any power to keep it there. Don't forget to clean up the sugar, it'll attracts ants.

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light

Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).
