Question Yamaha Big Bear 350 electric start problem!!

I have a 1998 yamaha big bear 350. I push start, then the neutral and oil lights come on but it doesnt start. I can pull start and it fires up right away. Could it be that the battery is too weak to start it or that it needs a new spark plug? Please help!

When you say "push start" are you trying to push start the machine rolling or are you depressing the start button? If you are pressing the start button do you hear the starter motor run? If you don't hear the starter motor I would first check the battery and battery cable connections. Since you can start it with the pull cord I would assume everything in the engine including the spark plug are OK.
