Crankshaft Position Sensor - ground wire?

I am looking to incorporate the ground wire from the crankshaft position sensor into a kill switch. The connector is not the flat kind - it is round with the pins in a triangle formation. The connector is all sealed up so I cannot tell which wire ends up at which pin (I don't know which pin is the ground anyway-haha). Also, the wires from the sensor to the connector are all fused together--not separate, free wires (if that makes sense). The only distinction on the wires I can tell is the center wire of the three, has a white line on it. The two outside wires look identical to me, but who knows.

Which wire is the ground, or how can I determine?
