Hello, my name is***** for the question. It sounds like you either have a bad cell in the battery or a bad connection at the battery or the fuse box. As long as it is running the alternator should be able to produce enough voltage to keep the vehicle running, so yes you should be fine to drive it to the shop. Please let me know if you have further questions.
