could dark matter be linked to the pioneer anomoly?

Ok here is my reasoning I read that recent attempts to detect dark matter failed so in the back of my mind I filled away a piece of information, dark matter might not be in the inner solar system.

and just recently, I was reading the wikipedia entery about dark matter and it said something to the effect of- the anomolus accelerations are not observed until about 20 au

I know common thinking is there some kind of particle drag but there's nothing out there... So, dark matter?


perhaps it's in some sort of shell around the sun and its so far away because it's repelled by the sun due to some kind of I don't know difference of charge I guess.
