The Repsol Honda rider was a disappointing fourth and missed out on the final podium place to new team-mate Marc Marquez in Qatar but aims to put that right in Austin.
Pedrosa had started from the front row at Losail but was beaten by Factory Yamaha team-mates Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi and MotoGP rookie Marquez.
The Spaniard was confident of having resolved unspecified issues from Qatar and admitted: "Qatar was not the start we expected, but I know what the issue was so it's clear for the next race."
Pedrosa hopes three days spent testing at the Circuit of the Americas will pay off in the race on Sunday.
"We were in Austin just over a month ago and I'm sure that will be useful for us, as we have a base setting, there are a lot of tight corners and the pace changes from section to section.
"However, the track will be quite different, with so many more bikes there and much more rubber laid down, so I hope the bike will still work well."
New team-mate Marquez was quickest during the three-day test in Austin and has been tipped to top the podium on Sunday.
Marquez said: "To be on the podium in my first race was a dream come true, but now we must face the reality and focus on the job at hand.
"I am looking forward to going to Austin...we will concentrate on our work and our own agenda to prepare ourselves in the best possible way for the race."
The Circuit of the Americas is one of three venues in the United States on the 2013 MotoGP calendar, joining California's Laguna Seca and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
