As a consequence, an extra-gravitational acceleration like APio should also affect the motion of any other ob ject moving, at least, in the region in which the Pioneer anomaly manifested itself.

Sanders (2006) disproves the possibility that APio is also present in the inner regions of the Solar System by using older data for the perihelion advances of Mercury and Icarus.
Test of the Pioneer anomaly with the Voyager 2 radio-ranging distance measurements to Uranus and Neptune
APio for those planets for which data sets covering at least one full orbital revolution exist.
Test of the Pioneer anomaly with the Voyager 2 radio-ranging distance measurements to Uranus and Neptune
In the circular orbit limit, Anderson et al. (1998; 2002) use the erroneous formula ∆a/a = −Ar /AN and apply it to Mars and the Earth to show that an extra-acceleration like APio cannot exist in that regions of the Solar System. 3For Neptune E0 = 128.571 deg at JD=2451545.0.
