Ranger Z21 Commanche 2005

The boat will not engage into Forward; it has no problem with Reverse or Neutral, but when Forward is selected, the actuator (???; it's a black box that has engine cables and electronics going into it)seems to move into Forward, then back to Neutral, and there is a blinking red light flashing. The boat was running fine last time we used it, although it was a very bumpy ride home. The actuator doesn't seem to be attached to anything to keep it steady. Not sure if this is the best explanation of the parts, but it's what's happening. Any idea of what's happened? What the red lights mean? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Joe.
