If you are in a hot climate and use the AC year round like I do, it is possible that the fan motor itself is worn out. My 2003 had this occur and it progressed to idling problems before it was resolved.
The motor has carbon brushes inside it which do wear out with use. The brushes are staggered (I dis-assembled mine as a post-mortem). At idle, both brushes are in use. At highway speed only one brush is in use. Directly attaching the battery gave it normal voltage - but much more current than normal. That is why it worked.
My solution is to replace the fan motor with a BRAND NEW one. A salvage part would work, but you run the risk of not knowing how worn its brushes are. New fans are available w/o the shroud and fan blade at many parts stores. Mine took a week on special order and cost around $150 for one with a lifetime warranty. Pretty straightforward to swap out - just make sure the wiring connector is correct before you disassemble the shroud. The replacement motor had the wiring located slightly different, but I was able to easily drill the plastic shroud and re-route the path of the wires.

Remove battery and battery support you'll be able to undo starter bolt's trough there and slip starter out.

Testimonial: "This didn't help, because you had to remove the engine structural collar under the starter to get at the starter bolt. It was more complicated."
