Pettersen makes her ninth Solheim Cup appearance this week at Gleneagles, eight years on from securing a dramatic point to help Europe to a narrow win in Ireland.
The contest was level heading into a weather-affected Sunday singles, where the Americans edged ahead and appeared on-course for a fourth consecutive win with just three matches left to complete.
Playing against Michelle Wie, Pettersen trailed with three holes to play but holed a 20-foot birdie at the 16th and matched the American's three at the par-four 17th to leave their match all-square heading up the last.
Pettersen then rolled in a third straight birdie at the 18th to secure a 1up victory, moving Europe 13.5-12.5 ahead, before Caroline Hedwall snatched a half against Ryann O'Toole and Azahara Munoz defeated Angela Stanford to complete a dramatic victory for the hosts.
