French translation:Le voyant vert indiquant une mesure normale (pass) ne s'allume pas
Explanation:
"Pass", of course, means that the container has passed the test.

"Voyant lumineux", or "ampoule verte" or "lampe-témoin verte" (green signal lamp) are all acceptable translations for "green lamp".

The complete sentence would read:

Le test se déroule normalement, mais le voyant vert indiquant "passe" ne s'allume pas.

Or I would even be more specific by translating:

Le test se déroule normalement, mais le voyant vert indiquant une mesure normale ne s'allume pas.

le témoin/la lampe "passer" ne s'allume pas


Explanation:
Dans votre phrase, cela donne :
"Le test se déroule normalement, mais le témoin/la lampe "PASSER" ne s'allume pas".

C'est à dire qu'apparement, tout se passe bien, mais la petite lumière marquée "PASS" ne marche pas - ou ne s'allume pas car il y a un autre problème technique. Difficile d'âtre plus précis sans plus de contexte.

Vous aurez peut-être envie de laisser "PASS" en anglais si l'affichage du matériel reste en anglais - ce qui est très courant.
