@djholley yes you do want to start with a new battery. Take a good look at the board once you have the phone apart to double check for pry-damage. Possible but not an exclusive cause. Follow the guides from here iPhone 5 Repair for the repair and get the parts from here as well. You may get parts cheaper somewhere else but definitely not better than at iFixit ;-)
