I have same problem as the Almighty 66. Anything else besides a battery?

Also will a wired or wireless mouse override the trackpad?

Hello,

This issue that theALmighty66 has - Sudden Trackpad Malfunctions?

If the battery isn't bulging and pressing against the underside of the trackpad, it could simply be something like debris/foreign matter or even some form of liquid damage around the trackpad area as previously mentioned. In my experience, I haven't seen the issue caused by anything other than those suggestions.

Depending on your version of OS X/macOS, you can enable  > System Preferences... > Accessibility > Mouse & Trackpad > Ignore built-in trackpad when mouse or wireless trackpad is present.

See if that works for you.
