This sounds like shutter release problem and can be fixed by replacing a 3v 220 mf capacitor ( leaking by now because they do not last more than 8-10 years and your camera is 25 years old ). You can do it your -self but will need a soldering iron and a replacement capacitor : remove bottom cover and locate small ( usually black in colour ) capacitor on the right hand side of the camera. Unsolder -- keeping an eye on polarity which is marked on the outside of the capacitor-- and replace with new one. Switch camera on and it should release the shutter and you are back in the saddle.

No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.
