It sounds like a bad ground, I would the ground on the battery cable ( in the trunk ) and the engine to body ground ( wire from back side of motor to body on the driver side under matser cylinder ). Its also a good idea to clean the surfaces where they attach. Heres a link link to the codes: http://www.miata.net/garage/faultcodes.html
