Check your fluid level again, it should only do that if the level's low.

subaru's e-brake is seperated from the regular braking system so u dun really have to loosen up ur e-brake...it's more just like a habit to keep the e-brake off because some cars (like Honda / VW) uses the regular brake as part of the e-brake system...

if your e-brake light comes on and off and u are sure u have enough brake fluid...try to check the connection on the wiring but i pretty much doubt it...
