Explanation:
It probably would have made more sense if the writer wrote Diagnostic Wedge Lamp.

A wedge lamp is a type of bulb, and diagnostic could refer to the gauge-function of the lamp.

I think this sentence refers to making sure the lights are working on the gauges. (Such as the fuel indicator in your automobile.)
