Have you checked the fuse / relay for the ABS ( antilock brake system )? The pump is located under the hood on the passenger side. It is possible the pump itself could be going bad.

Im sure you checked your fluid level already.

Does your 93 miata happen to be an LE?

If you pull the fuse the pump will stop running, that will keep it from draining the battery.
