Every morning when I release the emergency brake, the light on the dashboard stays on. At times I apply and release as hard as I can and the light goes off. During the day, there is no issue with the light. I'm guessing there is a loose connection. If so, where do I go about checking the connection? If not, what else could be wrong?

The first port of call should be your brake fluid reservoir. The emergency brake light will stay on if the brake fluid level is low (which could happen if your brake pads are wearing thin).
