1.I remember to lock the door. Here does the sentence express the future event like (I remember to lock the door = I remember that I have to/should lock the door) ?
2.I remember locking the door. Here does the sentence express the past event or completed work like (I remember locking the door = I remember that I locked the door/I have locked the door)? please explain grammatically.

    Yes. Sentence (1) shows the present simple tense being used to express a habit.
    In the above example, 'I remember' means 'I habitually (or 'regularly') remember.
