Thumbs up E-Brake Light....?

Car: 96 civic 4dr (rear drums)
Here's what happened....earlier this winter my E-brake light started to come on and then go off shortly thereafter. After carefully looking at it I realized the light came on when I was accelerating and would turn off when the car was at a constant speed...eventually it would stay on longer and it's at a point where it is constantly on...

I am not sure what the problem is but I have some idea's...

1-Because of the cold the e-brake is not completely opening which is causing the light to come on.
2-the cable is loose and needs adjustment

I would appreciate some feedback......thanks guys

Oh ya...I also wanted to know how I can change the cabin filter in the car...

check your brake fluid level. If its low the light will come on.
