If a lemon law remedy is available, the lemon law of the state where initial retail delivery occurred is generally where jurisdiction applies.

More importantly, why does anyone think that lemon laws would have any relationship to this situation whatsoever? First of all, most lemon laws deal only with the sale of new cars. Second of all, lemon laws generally are for situations where a car has repeated problems that a dealer cannot (or does not) fix. That is not the case here.
It depends on the total repair history of the car. If there were prior failed repairs for SES codes being thrown, and Indiana lemon law applied to used cars as well as new cars, then OP could have a lemon law claim.
